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 powerplayshort 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.

Maxim Lapierre of the Montreal Canadiens completed what was unofficially known as a Maxim Lapierre Hat Trick in 2010 by scoring one goal and serving two penalties for diving.

David Legwand completed what was unofficially known as a Legwand Hat Trick in 2009 by notching a goal, assist and becoming a father, all on the same day.
