CEDAR PARK, Texas - Colton Sceviour scored three times during the Texas Stars' six-goal third period, in a 9-3 victory over the Abbotsford Heat in American Hockey League play on Sunday.

Screviour scored his first of the game, also on the power play, just 22 seconds later. He made it 5-3 with another power-play goal at 7:21.
