In sports like soccer and hockey, a "hat trick" happens when the same player scores three goals in the same game.
As a part of hockey culture, other forms of hat tricks were developed. For instance, a natural hat trick happens when the same player scores three goals in a row in the same game.
A Gordie Howe hat trick is an informal achievement where the same player scores a goal, sets an assists and engages in a fight in the same game. However, this is just part of the sports lore and doesn't count for official statistics — although the goal, the assist and the penalty minutes from the fight do count, but separately.
It's named after Canadian forward Gordie Howe, one of the greatest hockey players ever.
It's the title of the first Ferda Boys webcomics issue and plays a major role in the plot.
It also plays a major role in the second Ferda Boys comic strip.
