Watch Kyle Palmieri collect his first hat trick

Feb 28, 2013, 12:45 AM EST

The Anaheim Ducks started 2013 strong even as Ryan Getzlaf and especially Corey Perry struggled. Now that they’re on fire, the Ducks are reaping the benefits – and so is young forward Kyle Palmieri.

He made some great plays of his own to score the first hat trick of his career – a natural one, at that – in the Anaheim Ducks’ dominant 5-1 win against the Nashville Predators on Wednesday.

Here’s video of that trio:

Interestingly, Perry and Getzlaf assisted on all three of his consecutive goals. In fact, the box score read the same each time: Perry provided the primary helper while Getzlaf got the secondary one.

Palmieri now has seven goals on the season. The Ducks’ Twitter feed provided some interesting nuggets:

  • That’s the 40th hat trick and the 15th player to record one in franchise history.
  • It’s the sixth natural hat trick by a Ducks player.
  • At 22, he’s the second-youngest to get a trio; Bobby Ryan did it when he was 21.
