OKOTOKS, AB (November 20, 2021) ““ Veteran goaltender Jack McNaughton (Calgary, AB) stopped all 20 shots he faced, as the Okotoks Oilers (10-14-1) snapped a four-game losing streak, and eight-game skid at home, with a convincing 4-0 victory over the visiting Olds Grizzlys on Saturday night.

Tucker McRae (Calgary, AB) scored the only goal of the second, firing a wrist shot off the back bar and in at 16:51 off the rush for a 3-0 advantage. In the third, Sam Moshurchak (Calgary, AB) scored on a wrist shot off the rush as well for a 4-0 final score.

Okotoks outshot Olds 22-20 in the game, going 2 for 3 on the power play and a perfect 4 for 4 on the penalty kill.
