Shane Danyluk made his goaltender's first start easy on Sunday.

He scored twice and had an assist in the Prince Albert Raiders' 5-3 win over the Kootenay Ice in Western Hockey League play.

Andy Desautels made 26 saves to earn the win.

It was his first WHL start and just his second WHL appearance -- two years ago he played 10 minutes in a game for Everett and had one goal against.

Last year, Desautels played for Flin Flon in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

Mackenzie Skapski made five saves on eight shots in the first period for the Ice before being replaced by Wyatt Hoflin, who stopped 11-of-13 shots.

Elsewhere in the WHL, it was: Calgary 6 Edmonton 5 (OT); Victoria 2 Vancouver 1; Red Deer 4 Moose Jaw 3 (SO) and Tri-City 5 Everett 3.

At Cranbrook, B.C., Sawyer Lange, Davis Vandane and Leon Draisaitl also scored for Prince Albert (6-0-1).

Brock Montgomery had a pair of goals for Kootenay (1-4-0) and Sam Reinhart had three assists.

Hitmen 6 Oil Kings 5 (OT)

At Calgary, Spencer Humphries scored a power-play goal at 4:11 of overtime to lift the Hitmen (4-0-2) to a win over Edmonton (4-2-1).

Royals 2 Giants 1

At Vancouver, Austin Carroll's second period power-play goal made the difference as Victoria (6-2-0) defeated the Giants (2-5-0).

Rebels 4 Warriors 3 (SO)

At Moose Jaw, Sask., Matt Bellerive scored the only goal in the shootout to give Red Deer (3-5-1) a win over the Warriors (3-3-1).

Americans 5 Silvertips 3

At Everett, Wash., Justin Feser and Brian Williams each had a goal and an assist, leading Tri-City (4-3-1) to a victory over the Silvertips (1-5-1).
