Even Rocco Grimaldi cannot believe it.
On Thursday night, in the first period of the game between his Nashville Predators and the Detroit Red Wings, Grimaldi did not waste time. The forward recorded three goals in just two minutes and 34 seconds.
His hat trick, and a lone goal from teammate Eeli Tolvanen, allowed the Preds to take a 4-0 lead in the first period.
Grimaldi, who grew up skating for the Detroit Little Caesars AAA program, has notched his first career NHL hat trick tonight against the Red Wings. It is a record for fastest three goals by an individual in a game in Predators' history.
This is unbelievable! Hat off to you, Grimaldi!
