Pavel Gogolev of the Newfoundland Growlers will try to become only the fifth player in ECHL history to score three-or-more goals in three straight games when the Growlers visit Reading tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

The 23-year-old scored three goals in Newfoundland’s 4-1 win against Trois-Rivières on Saturday before netting another hat trick on Sunday in the Growlers’ 9-2 victory over the Lions.

Brian Martin of Hampton Roads was the first player to score a hat trick in three straight games, accomplishing the feat in 1989 on Dec. 9 against Nashville, Dec. 10 against Virginia and Dec. 12 against Knoxville. The record was tied by Trent Kaese of Columbus in 1992 and Darryl Noren of Charlotte in 1994.  

Twelve players, including Gogolev, have scored hat tricks in back-to-back games since Gibson tied the record with the last prior to this season being Utah’s Josh Dickinson, who tallied consecutive hat tricks on Oct. 16, 2019 against Wichita and on Oct. 18, 2019 at Allen.

Daoust of Cincinnati tallied three goals on Dec. 16, 2007 against Johnstown and on Dec. 19, 2007 against Wheeling; Dusty Jamieson of Charlotte scored three goals on Oct. 20 and 21, 2006 against Wheeling; Miguel Delisle of Idaho scored three goals in consecutive games against Bakersfield on Dec. 17 and 19, 2004; Andrew Williamson of Toledo scored three goals in consecutive games on Feb. 9, 2001 at Johnstown and had four goals on Feb. 10, 2001 at Johnstown. Williamson led the league with 63 goals in 1999-2000 and 52 goals in 2000-01.  

In a six-game span in 1999-2000, Jay Murphy of Louisiana scored four hat tricks, including back-to-back games on March 12 against Birmingham and March 17 against Jacksonville, and had two goals in the other two games. Paul Strand of Raleigh scored five goals on Jan. 17, 1998 against Roanoke and had three goals on Jan. 23, 1998 at Hampton Roads.
