During the game last night my brother and I got to discussing Gordie Howe hat-tricks after Dale Weise had put up a goal and a fight part way through the second. This discussion led to coming up with alternate hat-tricks for various Canuck players, here is what we came up with.
Daniel Sedin Hat-trick: A goal, an assist and diving accusation
Henrik Sedin Hat-trick: two assists and an offensive zone penalty
Alex Burrows Hat-trick: A goal, a chirp and a rejected fight invitation
Ryan Kesler Hat-trick: A blocked shot, a powerplay goal and a pointless dangle
Mason Raymond Hat-trick: An off balance cut to the outside, a missed shot and a Hughson “With Speed!”
Sami Salo Hat-trick: a Goal, a whiff and a groin injury.
Kevin Bieksa Hat-trick: An assist, a scowl and a bad pinch
Dan Hamhuis Hat-trick: A blocked shot, a great recovery and a terrible shot
Cody Hodgson Hat-trick: A shot, a blind spin pass and ten minutes of discussion about where he fits on the team.
Roberto Luongo Hat-trick: A Bronx cheer, a belly flop and an over analysed sound bite.
Corey Schneider Hat-trick: A save, a goaltending controversy and a trade rumour
Marco Sturm Hat-trick: A trio of mentions by the play by play announcer
Keith Ballard Hat-trick: A rush, a turnover and a benching
Mikael Samuelsson Hat-trick: A goal, an assist and two months of invisibility
Alex Edler Hat-trick: A breakout pass, a shot wide and talk about how he’s going to be great one day
Manny Malhotra Hat-trick: 60% faceoff wins, a rush that almost produces a goal and mention of his eye injury and how inspiring he is.
Feel free to add any you can think of and adjust the ones I came up with. Enjoy.
