Who will get the first Hat Trick?

Recommended Posts

No one. We'll go the entire season without one. However, on the deciding game to enter the playoffs, LaRose will bust out and score a hat trick, record 2 assists, and beat up Crosby.

Just you wait. With LaRose getting more ice time this season, I have no doubt he'll have a career year. Think about it: Who's the only one to beat Kolzig on Saturday? Granted, he hit the post, but it got past Kolzig.

Natural hat trick...Nobody

First hat trick...Williams, since no one else has picked him

In both field hockey[/post] and ice hockey a hat-trick is when a player scores three goals in a game. Although people may consider a hat trick as three goals scored in a row, this is commonly confused with a natural hat trick (below). The term was brought to ice hockey in the 1940s when Sammy Taft, a Toronto hatter, gave free hats to Maple Leafs players who scored three goals in a game. It is not certain whether he picked up this practice from cricket.

A natural hat trick is when a player scores three consecutive goals in the same game or scores three goals in a period. A player accomplishes a Gordie Howe hat trick by scoring a goal, getting an assist, and winning a fight, all in the same game though Howe only recorded one in his career. While this description has remained popular, it doesn't satisfy the conditions of a hat trick. Mario Lemieux once accomplished what was unofficially referred to as a "Mario Lemieux hat trick" in 1993, by 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. He has also recorded a "5-Goal Hat Trick" or the "Ultimate Hat Trick" or a "quintella", in which he scored in all five possible game situations in one game. He scored on a Powerplay, shorthanded, even strength, penalty shot and an empty net goal. Calgary Flames star Jarome Iginla came close on February 23, 2003 against the Phoenix Coyotes: he scored on a powerplay, shorthanded, even strength and an empty net goal, but Mario Lemieux is the only player to score the "Quintella" in NHL history.

would love to see cole score a hat trick -- maybe the next home game against vancouver & luongo. that would be the ultimate. vancouver pulls luongo after cole scores his third goal of the night. stranger things have happened.
