Gre­gor moved back up to the top line along­side cap­tain Brett How­den and Jay­den Hal­bgewachs, and as the fi­nal score would in­di­cate, the old chem­istry was most cer­tainly there.

Hal­bgewachs had a goal and two as­sists, Gre­gor an as­sist and How­den two goals and a helper — a per­for­mance that con­trib­uted to How­den be­ing named the West­ern Hockey League’s Player of the Week on Mon­day.

Oleg So­sunov had the War­riors’ other goal and an as­sist and fin­ished the con­test an im­pres­sive plus-six.

Brody Willms turned aside 34 shots to se­cure the vic­tory, im­prov­ing his goals against average to 2.77 and mov­ing into fifth among WHL goal­tenders.

The War­riors im­proved to 11-41-0 and cur­rently sit sec­ond over­all in the WHL, three points back of the first-place Vic­to­ria Roy­als. They have a full week off to re­cover from the trip and are back in ac­tion Thurs­day when they host the Prince Al­bert Raiders at 7 p.m. at Mo­saic Place.

“We’ve had a good trip, we’ll give them a cou­ple of days off and we’ll re­lax and do some more team build­ing at home now and get right back at it on Thurs­day,” Hunter said.
