Team GHHTs: Kansas City Scouts

  The Kansas City Scouts only played two seasons in the NHL before moving to Colorado to become the Rockies.  During those two seasons, the team accumulated three Gordie Howe Hat Tricks.  The first being by Dave Hudson, a natural trick, last period of the last game of the 1974-75 season.  In comparison, the team only had one three goal hat trick during its existence, which was by Wilf Paiement, in an epic (for Scouts fans) win versus the Montreal Canadiens.  The Scouts would finish their time in Kansas with a 16 game winless streak, then they won a game... and then they finished with a 27 game winless streak.
