The Vail Yeti swept the FDNY (Fire Department of New York City) hockey team this weekend, winning on both Friday and Saturday in front of fired up Yeti crowds. The Yeti won 9-6 the first night and 8-5 the second, never trailing in either game.

Hat tricks from Justin Elmore and Dalton Speelman led the Yeti on Friday night. On Saturday, the Yeti jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first period. Justin Buzzeo, a 2019 East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) all-star, led the way for the Yeti with two goals and one assist in a very physical game. Eight different Yeti’s picked up goals on the night.

Vail is off this weekend; a scheduled game with Aspen on Saturday was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the Aspen team. The next home games will be Jan. 21-22 versus the Boulder Bison.
