On Bobby Ryan’s hat trick last night…
Last night in Los Angeles, right wingBobby Ryanbecame the first rookie in Ducks history to record a hat trick…his three goals in a 2:21 span (which tied score 3-3) were the fastest three goals scored by a Ducks player in club history, besting the 12:18 mark held byTeemu Selanneon Nov. 10, 1997 vs. San Jose….it marked the fastest three goals by an NHL rookie since 1938(Detroit’s Carl Liscombe, vs. Chicago on 3/13/38, 1:52) and the third fastest overall by a rookie in league history (record held by Boston’s Harry Oliver, vs. Chicago on 1/11/27, 1:25)…the last time any player in the NHL scored three goals faster was CAR’sRay Whitneyon Feb. 8, 2007…in addition, it was only the third natural hat trick overall by a Ducks player (last: Selanne, 11/26/99 at Dallas)…Ryan became the ninth different Duck to record a hat trick – which was the 27th overall in club history.
