Tyler Ennis’ parents were in the crowd for his first career hat trick

A hat trick is not an easy thing to do in the NHL. Even tougher if you’re a fourth liner these days.

And it wasn’t until game 532 that Tyler Ennis finally got it done, but hey! He got it done. ICYMI, Ennis dropped three on the Calgary Flames’ David Rittich last night.

Three goals is special any night. But for the little engine that could, who was born just down the road from Calgary (okay, Alberta is a big place) in Ed-money, it was extra cool having his parents in the crowd.

Look at that smile, cut lip and all.

“Work hard, compete on everything, and keep that confidence going.”

Big night, Tyler!
