Hat Trick By Sudbury Native Sparks Tri-City Storm to Victory

Michael Vecchione's overtime score the difference.

Sudbury's Michael Vecchione netted an overtime goal for the Tri-City Storm of the United States Hockey League against the Waterloo Black Hawks for a thrilling 6-5 victory on Jan. 25 in Kearney, Neb.

The goal was the third of the game for the 5-foot-10, 195-pound right winger.

In the first period, Vecchione took a pass from Bonner and netted a turn-around shot from the top of the crease past Waterloo goalie Cal Peterson, tying the game 1-1.

He struck again later in the period on the power play. Again taking a pass from Tim Bonner, he faked a shot and then fired a blast from the left circle using a screen from teammate Tim Lappin to beat Peterson for the second time in the period.

Vecchione is a free agent for the NHL.
