Sandhu completes hat trick in 28 minutes in Silvertips 7-5 win over Americans

EVERETT, Wash. - Tyler Sandhu scored a hat trick to lead the Everett Silvertips to a 7-5 victory over the Tri-City Americans on Sunday in the final game of the WHL season for both teams.

The 16-year-old Sandhu scored three times in the first 28 minutes as Everett took a 6-1 lead.

Landon Oslanski, Carson Stadnyk, Reid Petryk and Mitch Skapski also scored for Everett (25-40-3-4), Joshua Winquist added three assists, and Daniel Cotton made 24 saves.

Malte Stromwall scored twice, while Zachary Yuen, Connor Rankin and Jesse Mychan also scored for the Americans. Luke Lee-Knight made 17 saves for Tri-City (40-27-2-3), which finished the season on a five-game losing streak.

Everett was 0 for 4 on the power play, while Tri City connected 3 of 6 times with the man advantage.

The game had no bearing on the playoffs as Tri-City had already nailed down the fifth seed in the Western Conference, and Everett was already locked into the eighth seed.

The Americans played a skater short as they rested veteran defencemen, and Everett gave regular shifts to three 15-year-old call-ups.

Quote of the Day

He's a strong kid. He's a competitive kid, and certainly not afraid to go into the corners. He's got the skating ability to escape and help us execute in certain situations, but he's got that competitive nature that's a huge part of it too, especially against a team like this.
