The season is just a few weeks old, but the Detroit Red Wings have made some history. In Sunday's game vs. the Chicago Blackhawks, Lucas Raymond became the youngest member of the franchise (19 or younger) to score a hat trick since Steve Yzerman did it vs. Toronto in 1985.

In the third period, and Detroit nursing a 5-3 lead, Raymond blasted a slapshot past Marc-Andre Fleury for this third goal of the game in this video from Bally Sports Detroit.

The goal puts him in select company with two other young Wings, Steve Yzerman, and Gordie Howe as the only players in franchise history, age 19 or younger, to have a four-point game.
