Examiner.com: Home wins becoming old hat for Ams

By Rene Ferran | Examiner.com

Two weeks ago, hats flew onto the Toyota Center ice in celebration of Adam Hughesman’s apparent hat trick.

Not so fast, the 19-year-old Tri-City Americans forward said. One of those goals wasn’t mine, he said, and he wasn’t about to take credit for it. “Bad karma,” he said.

Well, Hughesman has had nothing but good karma since that game, and he finally was rewarded with a hat trick Saturday night in the Americans’ 7-4 home victory over the Everett Silvertips.

Hughesman wrapped up his second career hat trick by finishing off a wild scramble in front of the Everett net just as a power play expired. Again, the hats sailed onto the ice, although perhaps not the deluge expected from a crowd of 5,181.

“Apparently, people don’t wear hats to the game any more,” he joked. “They’re probably mad that I tricked them the last time.”
