WATCH: Mike Richards picks up the Gordie Howe Hat Trick

Tuesday night in Columbus, Mike Richards picked up his first regular season Gordie Howe Hat Trick as a member of the LA Kings – a goal, an assist and a fight. He found the back of the net at 13:44 of the third period, while the assist came on Jeff Carter‘s goal at the 4:25 mark of the second and his fight with Brandon Dubinsky came about seven minutes later. Check out the highlights…

The last Kings’ Gordie-trick of significance was last January, when Kyle Clifford won a steak dinner from Kevin Westgarth – see story here.

    First goal in the clip did not appear to be the one Richards assisted on?

    • John Hoven says:
