KELOWNA - The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Swift Current Broncos 4-0 on home ice Tuesday night, opening the WHL season with their seventh straight win.

The other standout of the evening was Jackson Whistle in net, who stopped all 18 shots the Broncos fired his way. Kelowna outshot the Broncos 26-18 in the game.

The other two goals came from Cole Linaker and Justin Kirkland. Austin Glover was on hand for two noteable assists.

Kelowna's next game is Saturday when they host the Lethbridge Hurricanes at Prospera Place.
