The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Edmonton Oil Kings 1-0 on Friday night at Rogers Place in Edmonton, in the midst of a three-game trip through the WHL Central Division.

Michael Herringer made 38 saves to record his first shutout of the season as the Rockets improved to 3-4-0-0 on the season with its second straight win.

Calvin Thurkauf scored the winning goal midway through the third period, firing home his 3rd goal of the season.

The Oil Kings outshot the Rockets 38-34 in the game but couldn’t beat Herringer, who recorded his fourth career shutout.
