A hat trick is when a player scores three goals in a game.
They can be scored in any manner, but the player has to score three goals in the period in between the opening faceoff and the closing siren.
Wayne Gretzky holds the record for most hat tricks with 10 in one season and most in a career with 50.
Then there are the other guys.
The following list is of the guys who had no business netting three but somehow did it anyway.
Some are good players who were never known for scoring, and some you’ve never heard of but all were surprises.
