Team Ott takes NWHL All-Star Game behind Hayley Scamurra's hat trick

While most of the league's top players are overseas playing for Team USA, there was no shortage of power in Sunday's NWHL All-Star Game.

How so? Kelsey Koelzer earned co-MVP honors despite being part of the losing team.

Though Koelzer scored a game-high four goals for Team Leveille, it wasn't enough to outmatch Hayley Scamurra's hat trick as Team Ott won 8-6.

Scamurra completed her hat trick with 1:45 remaining in the second half -- instead of three 20-minute periods, there were two 25-minute halves -- to give Team Ott an insurance goal down the stretch.

Team Ott led 6-2 early in the second half before Koelzer went off. Not one ...

Not two ...

Not three ...

But four goals.

Like we said, safe to say they earned co-MVP honors.
