As the final pick of the 2005 NHL Draft, Patric Hornqvist has done some fantastic things in his overachieving career.

It took him until age 29 and regular season game 488 to achieve a specific milestone, however, as he collected his first hat trick as the Pittsburgh Penguins opened up a 4-0 lead against the Arizona Coyotes.

Video will be added to this post when available.

In the meantime, here are all three goals in GIF form.
