Troy Terry First NHL Hat Trick Leads the Ducks to a Big Victory

ANAHEIM, CA – Troy Terry hit the 20-goal plateau with his first career hat trick, leading the Ducks to a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at Honda Center. With the win, the Ducks improved to 18-11-7 (43 points) on the season, two points behind first place Vegas.

“For us, that’s as big a win as I can remember this year,” head coach Dallas Eakins said. “That was, to a man, everyone doing their job, everybody fully committed to a game plan. We had excellent goaltending, our D were solid, our forwards played all their roles to a T. We got big saves when they needed them. We had big blocked shots, especially late. When we needed them, both our penalty kill and our power play, our special teams chipped in. And we had some really unselfish plays too.”

With three goals, Terry scored the 59th hat trick in franchise history and the first since Isac Lundestrom‘s three-goal performance last March vs. St. Louis. Terry ranks third among NHL leaders in goals (21).

“I’m extremely proud of Troy Terry,” Eakins said. “I’ve seen this kid right from day one. For him to be where he’s at, goal-scoring, as a big influencer and driver on our team, it’s fun to watch. I think that’s one of the real privileges of coaching is to see these guys grow into players.”
