Shinkaruk's hatty, Kelley's shutout stump Rumble Bees 5-0

by Casey Bryant

In an offensive showcase for the Danbury Hat Tricks, Carter Shinkaruk shined, netting a trio of goals in a 5-0 rout.

Shinkaruk started the night with a lethal move in close, deking Rumble Bees netminder Morgan Hudson for a quick goal 1:41 into play. He added to the Hat Tricks lead minutes later, banging home a rebound in a netmouth scramble. 

Later in the first period, Cory Anderson redirected a shot from the blueline to put the Hat Tricks on top 3-0. The initial shot earned Danbury head coach Billy McCreary his first point as a player, credited with a primary assist.

Anderson potted a powerplay goal early in the second period, snapping a shot from between the hashmarks. Shinkaruk would complete the hat trick before period's end, once more converting on a rebound from a Billy McCreary perimeter shot.

Dillon Kelley would turn aside 23 shots in the win, earning his first shutout with the team.

The Hat Tricks will complete their weekend set against the Rumble Bees tomorrow night at 8pm. All Hat Tricks Kids Club members are eligible for a complimentary ticket, contact Jack O'Marra for details.. Tickets are available by clicking here.
