2012-13 GHT: Jamie Benn

 Jamie Benn earns his first career Godie Howe Hat Trick which included a spirited fight with Joe Thornton.  Sometimes the fight in the Gordie Howe Hat Trick is weak but this one was a doozy between two skilled players.  Benn added an assist and then scored an insurance goal in the third period to help cement a 3-1 victory for the Dallas Stars.

2012-13 GHT - Derek Dorsett

  Derek Dorsett is no stranger to the scoring sheet, albeit it's normally in the penalties section.  Dorsett led the NHL with 235 PIM in 2011-12.  On February 21st, 2013 versus the Detroit Red Wings, Dorsett was all over the scoring sheet as he achieved his first career Gordie Howe Hat Trick.  Dorsett scored to tie it 2-2 and then assisted on the game winning goal.  The fight was a quick one, Dorsett later called it a cheap shot by Tootoo.  What do you think?  Was Tootoo dirty or just quicker?  Here's a better link to the fight.
