ANCHORAGE, Alaska—Oh what a night for Alexandre Imbeault, the Aces forward carded a natural hat trick on Sunday, accounting for all of the Aces goals in their 3-1 victory over the Stockton Thunder. Alaska swept the series winning three games in three nights against the California based team.
For Imbeault the scoring outburst accounted for his 12th, 13th, and 14th goals of the year. After the game the man with three horn sounders gave some of the credit to Rob Murray saying "for myself I had a tough time the first night. I had a meeting with rob before the game and obviously I had a good game so feels good."
With 75 points and a record of 35-11-2-3 the Aces are a half game ahead of the Ontario Reign for the ECHL lead. Next Alaska will travel to Utah for a four game stint against the Grizzlies, that series begins Friday February 15th.
