The Edmonton Oil Kings struck for four power play goals en route to a 6-4 win over the Calgary Hitmen Saturday night at Rogers Place.

Carter Souch led the home side with three goals, completing the hat-trick with an empty net marker.

Riley Sawchuk, Ethan McIndoe and Connor McDonald also found the back of the net for the victors.

Egor Zamula, Carson Focht, Mark Kastelic and Sean Tschigerl replied for the Hitmen who built a 2-0 first period lead but trailed 4-3 through 40 minutes.

The two teams combined for six power play goals with the Oil Kings going 4-6 with the man advantage and Calgary 2-4.

Final shots were 32-23 Edmonton.

The win improves the Oil Kings record to 6-1-3-0 while the Hitmen drop to 4-1-1-0.
