Roman Horak continued his torrid start to the AHL season, as the Abbotsford Heat completed a two-game sweep of the Toronto Marlies with a 4-2 win Friday night in Abbotsford.
Horak had a natural hat-trick in the third period, to blow open the game. Horak now has ten goals in eight games to start the season. He leads the AHL in goals, two better than Drayson Bowman of the Charlotte Checkers.
The win moves the Heat to 6-1-0-2 on the season.
Abbotsford hosts Oklahoma City next Friday and Saturday nights. The Barons are the Edmonton Oilers farm team, and feature Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, and Justin Schultz – who currently leads the AHL in scoring.
