2015-16 was a slow season for Gordie Howe Hat Tricks. There were a total of seven. The previous low total I had researched was 10 in 2012-13, a lock-out shortened season.. Compared to 2014-15, fights per game was down to 0.28 from 0.32 and goals per game down to 2.71 from 2.73. So this was more a case of the stars not aligning for the GHHTs this year. Of note, Chris Neil notched his fourth career GHHT while playing in 900th career game. Alex Petrovic recorded a pair of Hat Tricks on February 9, 2006. One was the Gordie Howe Hat Trick, another was for fighting the same opponent, Evander Kane, three times during the same game.
