Andreas Athanasiou's hat trick lifts Colts to 8-5 win over Spirit

BARRIE, Ont. - Andreas Athanasiou had a hat trick as the Barrie Colts trounced the Saginaw Spirit 8-5 in Ontario Hockey League action on Thursday night.

Erik Bradford also scored twice for Barrie (6-2-0), which won its fifth game in a row. Zach Hall, Josh MacDonald and Anthony Camara added singles, while Steven Beyers chipped in with three assists.

Athanasiou now has five goals in his past three games, after the Detroit Red Wings draft pick didn't score a goal in his first four contests.

Garret Ross notched a pair in reply for Saginaw (2-4-2), which hasn't won a road contest all year. Steven Strong, Eric Locke and Brandon Lindberg also scored for the Spirit.

It was Lindberg's first-career OHL goal.

Both teams found success on the man advantage. The Colts went 1-for-4 on the power play, while the Spirit ended the night at 1-for-5.

Mathias Niederberger turned aside 34 shots in the win.

Jake Paterson began the game for Saginaw, but was pulled after allowing four goals on nine shots.

Nikita Serebryakov came on in relief, and in his first-ever OHL contest, the Russian stopped nine pucks.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
