Gordie Howe

Gordie Howe, byname of Gordon Howe, (born March 31, 1928, Floral, Saskatchewan, Canada—died June 10, 2016, Toledo, Ohio, U.S.), Canadian professional ice hockey player who led the Detroit Red Wings to four Stanley Cup championships (1950, 1952, 1954, and 1955) and to seven consecutive first-place regular-season finishes (1949–55) in a career that encompassed a record 1,767 NHL games played over 32 seasons (25 of them with the Red Wings). His extraordinary puck handling, skillful wrist shots (which he could make with either hand), and legendary toughness earned him the sobriquet “Mr. Hockey.” The Gordie Howe hat trick—a goal, an assist, and a fight within a single game—memorialized his style of play.

Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog: Gordie Howe hat trick in win

Landeskog scored a goal on four shots, dished two assists and earned a fighting major in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues in Game 1. Landeskog fought with Brayden Schenn in the first period of a contentious start to the first-round series. In the third, Landeskog helped out on both of Nathan MacKinnon's tallies in the third period, sandwiched around a goal of his own. The 28-year-old Landeskog had 52 points in 54 regular-season contests, and he should provide both offense and toughness on the top line.

Canucks' Travis Hamonic: Posts Gordie Howe hat trick

Hamonic scored a goal, supplied an assist and fought in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers. Hamonic handled the offense early in the contest, assisting on a Nils Hoglander goal 31 seconds into the game and scoring one of his own six minutes later. In the second period, Hamonic dropped the gloves with Alex Chiasson to complete the Gordie Howe hat trick. The 30-year-old Hamonic has six points, 69 blocked shots, 63 shots on net and 35 PIM in 30 outings. He's not an overly physical player -- the Manitoba native instead brings a generally steady defensive presence to the lineup.
