So apparently a player on the Canucks scored a Gordie Howe hat trick
So I’ve been on wikipedia looking at types of hat tricks. Some of my favorites:
Mario Lemieux hat trick (1993: receiving radiation treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma the day of the game, and then scoring a goal and an assist that night against the Philadelphia Flyers.)
Hitting for the Cycle: (December 31, 1988: aka “five-goal hat trick”, “ultimate hat trick”, “quintella”, “Texas Hat Trick”, or “Lemieux Cycle.” scoring in all five possible game situations in one game, against the New Jersey Devils. scoringon a powerplay, short handed, even strength, penalty shot, and an empty net goal.
Rat trick: December 1995- Florida panthers Captain Scott Mellanby; a term dubbed by teammate John Vanbiesbrouck after ridding the locker room of an unwanted rat with his stick, and scoring a pair of goals later that night.
