Dallas Stars forward Adam Cracknell got his first career hat trick. Followed by what is most likely his first career shark hat.

Cracknell, who had all of 11 career goals heading into this season, now has 10 on this season after the scoring outburst in a 6-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

In a post-game interview, Cracknell was shown the hats that were thrown on the ice. One of them, clearly from a prepared fan, was a shark hat.
