The Great Al Hill

Al Hill played his en­tire NHL ca­reer with Philadel­phia (a mod­est 221 reg­u­lar sea­son games) from the late 1970s and into the 1980s, but his first game was the great­est ar­rival in NHL his­tory. Al­though he would ac­crue but 95 points in his ca­reer, five came in his first game. Not only did he score two goals and add three as­sists, he fought Billy MacMil­lan, mark­ing the only time in NHL de­but his­tory that a player recorded a Gordie Howe hat trick.
