Justin Feser is not a numbers guy. The Tri-City Americans captain knew he needed a certain amount of points to reach 300 career points, he just didn’t know what that number was.
It was four. With a natural hat trick and an assist, Feser hit the 300-point mark and helped lead the Americans to a 5-3 victory Sunday over the Seattle Thunderbirds before a crowd of 3,664 at Toyota Center.
“I didn’t focus on that,” said Feser, who is the seventh Americans player to score 300 or more points. “Getting the two points tonight was more important than my personal stats. After losing in Kelowna (last Friday), we knew we had to come back to our building and use that to our advantage in front of our great fans.”
Tri-City (24-16-1-2, 51 points) moved within six points of fourth-place Spokane in the Western Conference standings. The Americans will play at Everett on Tuesday and at Vancouver on Wednesday.
