Mintos end losing streak in Moose Jaw

The Prince Albert Mintos concluded a three-game road swing in style Sunday.

A five-assist performance from Chase Bertholet and a hat trick showing from Gabe Klassen were the keys to the Mintos success at Mosaic Place as they snapped a six-game losing skid with a 6-0 win over the Moose Jaw Generals.

Klassen also had an assist in the triumph, which saw Ashton Ferster dish out three helpers.

Alex Ozar, Andrew Schaab and Logan Cox also scored for the visitors, who received a 30-save showing from Spencer Welke as he earned his second shutout of the season.

Jaxson Taupert stopped 23 shots for the 7-16-1-2 Generals, who have lost their last four games and are in 10th place in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League standings.

Next up for the Mintos, who have a 12-12-1-0 record and are tied for seventh with the Beardy’s Blackhawks in the league table, is a meeting at the Art Hauser Centre Tuesday with the Saskatoon Contacts as they begin a six-game home stand.
