Watch 18-year-old Patrik Laine score his third career hat trick

BY Pete Blackburn • February 15, 2017

Jets rookie Patrik Laine didn't take very long to let NHL fans know he's pretty good at scoring goals in bunches. The 18-year-old Finnish winger tallied two hat tricks in his first 14 games as a pro, which is a pretty insane feat.

On Tuesday night in Winnipeg, he got his third -- making him the first player in NHL history to have a hat trick of hat tricks before turning 19.

The middle tally against the Stars was the most impressive of the three, as Laine delivered a gorgeous quick snipe right off a draw.

That goal also proved to be the most important, as it gave the Jets a late lead before Laine provided some insurance with an empty-netter to seal the hat trick.

Despite missing some time with a concussion earlier in the year, Laine now sits tied for the sixth in the league with 26 goals.
