10th: Walker records first hat trick in front of the home fans
false
December 26, 2000

A large part of the celebration started a bit prematurely, but 13 months and 16 days after Rob Valicevic notched the first hat trick in franchise history, Scott Walker treated the Nashville fans to the first three-goal performance on home ice. The trick came in a 5-2 win against the Colorado Avalanche – featuring Joe Sakic, the owner of the first hat trick in building history.

When Walker scored his second goal with 6:15 left, fans littered the Sommet Center ice with hundreds of hats because they thought it was his third. But an earlier goal originally credited to Walker was changed to Patric Kjellberg. Those still in possession of headwear received another opportunity to honor Walker when he clinched the trick for real with a shorthanded empty-net tally with only 15 ticks left on the clock.

"It's a big thrill," Walker said. "I wasn't that concerned. Two goals for me is huge, three goals is just unbelievable. It's extra special for me to do it at home. To do it at home is just great, because the fans have been so great to us here."
