A pair of three-goal games were among the highlights during the week in the USHL and both came off the sticks of team captains.  Dominik Shine recorded the third hat trick of his USHL career when he scored three goals in the 8-5 win over Sioux City on February 26th.  Austin Cangelosi scored a goal in each period to lead the Youngstown Phantoms to a 4-0 win on February 27th against Chicago, his second USHL career hat trick.
