Jack Roslovic records second career NHL hat trick

NHL: Columbus Blue Jackets at Pittsburgh Penguins

Columbus Blue Jackets center Jack Roslovic of Columbus, Ohio recorded his second career National Hockey League hat trick on Saturday. He scored thrice in a 5-4 Blue Jackets win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Roslovic opened the scoring at 13:14 of the first period from Zach Werenski of Grosse Pointe, Michigan. He then scored at 4:04 of the third period from Patrik Laine of Tampere, Finland to put the Blue Jackets up 3-2. Roslovic’s hat trick was the overtime winner from Gustav Nyqust and Werenski at 3:19 of the extra period. Roslovic added a fourth point with an assist on a goal by Justin Danforth at 12:34 of the third period, which put the Blue Jackets up 4-2 at the time.

Interestingly, Roslovic’s only other National Hockey League career hat trick was the only other time he had a four-point game. That came on February 2, 2019, when he had three goals and one assist for four points in a 9-3 Winnipeg Jets win over the Anaheim Ducks. Roslovic was then traded by the Jets to the Blue Jackets on January 23, 2021 with Laine for a third round pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft and Pierre-Luc Dubois of Sainte-Agathe-Des-Monts, Quebec. The deal between the Jets and Blue Jackets was considered one of the biggest deals during the coronavirus-shortened 2021 regular season.

Roslovic is the third Blue Jackets player to get a hat trick this season. He is followed by Laine, who scored thrice for Columbus in a 7-4 Blue Jackets win over the Chicago Blackhawks on February 17, and Cole Sillinger, who scored three times for Columbus in a 6-4 win over the Vegas Golden Knights on March 13.

In 2021-22, Roslovic now has 15 goals and 21 assists for 36 points. He is a +1 with eight penalty minutes, three power-play points, two game-winning goals, 106 shots on goal, 312 faceoff wins, 21 blocked shots, 51 hits, 29 takeaways and 32 giveaways. Roslovic’s other game-winning goal this season came in a 4-2 Blue Jackets win over the Vancouver Canucks on November 26.
