Scoring a playoff hat trick is a rare feat. Scoring a playoff hat trick in an Ottawa Senators uniform had never been done by anyone not named Daniel Alfredsson before last night. Scoring a playoff hat trick before your 21st birthday had only been done by four other people ever.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau joined some pretty exclusive company last night.

Not only did he become the fifth player to ever record a hat trick in the playoffs before the age of 21, he became the second Ottawa Senator to ever accomplish the feat and, obviously, the youngest at that.

From Elias via ESPN:

Rookie Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the first three playoff goals of his NHL career in the Senators' 6-1 win over the Canadiens. The 20-year-old Pageau is the fifth player in the NHL's expansion era to record a playoff hat trick before his 21st birthday. The other players to do that since 1968 were Wayne Gretzky (who had two playoff hat tricks at age 20 in 1981), Peter Zezel (age 20 in 1986), Patrick Kane (age 20 in 2009) and Sean Couturier (age 19 in 2012).

To recap:

1) Third career playoff game

2) Hat trick

3) Scotiabank Place singing his name

All in all a successful day at the office for the rookie.
