The Anaheim Hills, California product scored the game-winning goal on a power-play breakaway in the third period on Wednesday receiving a perfect stretch-pass from Tyson Foerster to break a 3-3 tie against Hershey. York’s first pro goal came on April 26 at the Binghamton Devils as part of a three-point game.

Sandstrom, 24, is in his second pro season in North America. The Gavle, Sweden native has started nine games with the Phantoms going 4-3-2, 3.45,  .897.
