Talon Sigurdson scored his second hat trick of the season and 13 other players collected points Saturday night for the Anchorage Wolverines junior hockey team in a 7-1 rout of the Chippewa Steel.
Joey Moffatt scored twice and Cameron Morris and Hunter Bischoff each supplied two assists in the North American Hockey League game in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
The Wolverines won two out of three games against the Steel to improve to 5-3. The Tier II team will make its home debut Oct. 15 at Ben Boeke Ice Arena with a three-game series against the Springfield Jr. Blues of Illinois.
Sigurdson scored the game’s first goal and added two more in the third period to give Anchorage a 7-0 lead. Chippewa deprived goalie Shane Soderwall (25 saves) of the shutout by scoring midway through the final period.
Both of Moffatt’s goals came in the first period as Anchorage jumped to a 3-0 lead.
Alexander Babich and Jackson Reineke added second-period goals for a 5-0 lead, and Sigurdson wrapped up the scoring with his eighth and ninth goals of the season. Sigurdson owns a share of the NAHL goal-scoring lead with Amarillo’s Kristaps Skrastins and ranks second in points with 13.
