Coming into the game, the 23-year-old had a total of two goals in his first 16 ECHL games.

He bettered that in one turn on the ice during the Nailers' 6-4 victory.

Not the 21-second hat trick by Bill Mosienko of the Chicago Blackhawks on March 23, 1952, but quite the feat nonetheless.

Daniels' effort didn't better the league ECHL mark, either.
