Sittler gets first shutout in Royals’ win

Victoria Royals’ goalie Jayden Sittler captures his first career Western Hockey League shutout in victory over Regina Pats

It was another successful weekend for Victoria’s Western Hockey League Royals with wins on both Friday and Saturday.

The Royals captured a 5-0 win over the Regina Pats on Canadian Forces Appreciation Night on Saturday evening at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

Royals’ netminder Jayden Sittler captured his first career WHL shutout in the win. The 18-year-old goaltender turned aside all 33 shots in his second start in as many nights.

Victoria’s Travis Brown tallied two markers including a powerplay goal for the home side. Jared Dmytriw, Taylor Crunk, and Austin Carroll had the other Royals’ markers.

Regina started 15-year-old goalie Jordan Hollett in his first WHL career game where he stopped 21 of 26 shots.

Victoria went 1/1= 100.0% on the powerplay, while Regina went 0/2=0.0%.

On Friday night the Royals scored the first two goals of the game and never looked back on their way to a 3-1 victory over the Everett Silvertips.

Victoria’s netminder Jayden Sittler made his first start on home ice and stopped 28 of 29 shots for his first win as a Royal.

The Royals led the Silvertips 1-0 entering the second period before Jared Dmytriw gave the team a two goal lead midway through the frame. Joe Hicketts secured the win for Victoria with the team’s third goal in the final stanza. Austin Carroll scored the first marker for the Royals while Brayden Low scored the lone goal for Everett.

Silvertips’ goaltender Carter Hart turned away 22 of 25 shots directed at him in the loss.

Victoria was awarded four powerplays on the night while Everett received two opportunities. Neither team was able to capitalize with the extra attacker.

The Royals will now head out on a three game road trip starting tomorrow,  Tuesday, November 25th vs. the Portland Winterhawks at 7:00 p.m. They will then face-off against the Spokane Chiefs on Wednesday, November 26th at 7:05 p.m. and finish their road trip Saturday, November 29th vs. the Kamloops Blazers with puck drop at 7:00 p.m.
