What’s twice as good as a hat-trick? Double hat-trick.
Swift Current forward and New Jersey Devils prospect Josh Filmon scored six goals against Edmonton in a Western Hockey League game on Friday.
Fillon, who was selected by the Devils in the sixth round (No. 166) of the 2022 NHL Draft, started scoring and just couldn’t stop, leading the Broncos to an 8-4 victory.
The league shared video highlights of all six of Philmon’s goals on social media.
Fillon accomplished the rare feat just 36 minutes, 19 seconds into the game, scoring his sixth goal with 3:41 left in the second period.
At the time, he was the Broncos’ lone scorer. They took a 6-1 lead.
Filloni stopped Oil Kings goaltender Ronnie Geraghty on a shutout late in the third period, one game short of the WHL record for goals in a game. Mark shared by Brian Propp of Brandon (Jan. 25, 1977), Ray Ferraro of Brandon (Jan. 5, 1984), Mark McKay of Moose John (Dec. 19, 1984), Dennis Holland of Portland (Nov. 23). , 1988) and Swift Current’s Kimbi Daniels (Oct. 2, 1990).
