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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
