Career GHHTs: Cam Neely

  Cam Neely is regarded as one of the all-time best power forwards.  Neely scored 50 goals in three different seasons including 50 in 49 games during the 1993-94 season.  Neely slowed down in the fisticuffs department once he became a 50 goal scorer.  He had 10 GHHTs in his first 6 season, but only two during the rest of his career.  The rest of his career was marred by injuries.  Neely had four GHHTs during the 1987-88 season.  All four came within a 15 game span.  Neely took on all comers in his fights, including heavyweights Chris Nilan, Ken Baumgartner and Dave Semenko.  It is ironic that his last Gordie Howe Hat Trick was against Ulf Samuelsson, a player who cost Neely almost two seasons due to a dirty hit.
