BARRIE, Ont. - Ryan O'Connor scored a natural hat trick and an assist as the Barrie Colts bounced the Sudbury Wolves 5-2 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Anthony Camara and Josh MacDonald also struck for Barrie (20-8-1), while Steven Beyers chipped in with three assists.

Camara and O'Connor's second-period goals were the 50th of their OHL careers. O'Connor now leads all OHL defencemen with 13 goals.

Nicholas Baptiste and Justin Sefton replied for Sudbury (11-16-4), while Mathew Campagna had a pair of assists.

Wolves rookie forward Dominik Kahun failed to register on the score sheet and saw his points streak end at seven games.

Both teams struck on the man advantage. The Colts went 2-for-4 on the power play, while Sudbury finished the night at 1-for-3.

Alex Fotinos turned aside 24 shots in the win.

Wolves goaltender Taylor Dupuis made 31 saves.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
