Torres had at least 14 goals and 26 points in each of the three previous seasons.
For his career, Torres has 132 goals and 249 points in 619 NHL games.
He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
