Moose Jaw's Reece Newkirk continued his hot start to the season with the Portland Winterhawks on Wednesday.
Newkirk had a goal and three points in Portland's 8-2 rout of the Edmonton Oil Kings.
The season-high three-point effort for Newkirk snapped a two-game pointless streak but also gave him five goals and nine points through eight games this season.
The 17-year-old forward is playing on a line with a pair of NHL draft picks in Vegas first rounder Cody Glass and San Jose seventh rounder Joachim Blichfeld.
Newkirk and the Winterhawks host Everett on Saturday.
