Charles Hudon's natural hat trick was the difference for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens.
Hudon scored three times in less than five minute in the third period Wednesday to lift Chicoutimi over the Victoriaville Tigres 4-3 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Hudon had an even-strength goal, scored on a penalty shot and again 35 seconds later on the power play.
The 18-year-old left-winger was hooked by Victoriaville defender Troy Vance at the 17:03 mark of the period to earn the penalty shot.
Tigres centre Angelo Miceli was already in the penalty box with a double minor for high-sticking, setting up Hudon's power-play goal.
Hudon now has four goals on the season.
Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Saint John 4, Moncton 2; Acadie-Bathurst 4, Cape Breton 1; and Rouyn-Noranda 9, Sherbrooke 2.
