Eklund straw hat

William Eklund wrote the perfect ending to the San Jose Sharks straw hat giveaway day.

The forward recorded his first career hat trick after scoring the overtime winning goal to lead the Sharks to 3-2 win against the St. Louis Blues at the SAP Center on Saturday.

Fans tossed their straw hats the Sharks gave away before the game onto the ice after the goal.

Eklund threw on one of the Sharks straw caps to celebrate the win.

The Sharks forward wasn’t the only player to celebrate a career first on Saturday.

Cooley’s mother went through a range of emotions as she watched her son’s career milestone.

Forward Collin Graf made his NHL debut during the win. His family was also there to watch his first NHL game.
