Mercier nets trick in Steelheads debut

CREATED Oct. 12, 2013

Brett Robinson scored at 2:25 of overtime to lift the Steelheads to a 6-5 win over the Utah Grizzlies in Idaho's first exhibition of the season Friday night.

Newcomer Jason Mercier stole the spotlight, however. Mercier scored three goals and added an assist in his Steelheads debut.

Idaho and Utah will face each other again Saturday night at CenturyLink Arena in Boise for the Steelheads' annual "Season-Ticket Holder Only" game.
