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.

In the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, Moose Jaw's Chase Lacombe put together a two-assist effort to help the Humboldt Broncos to a 3-2 shootout win over the Flin Flon Bombers on Wednesday.

The two assists were the first points of Lacombe’s SJHL career after being held off the scoresheet in his first seven games.

The Broncos are now 8-3-1-0 this season after Wednesday's win.

Moose Jaw's Eric Soar didn’t hit the scoresheet for the Melville Millionaires in their 3-2 overtime win over the Weyburn Red Wings on Wednesday night.
