Harrison in the Hall (updates throughout)

MSU forward Zach Harrison is heading to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

At least his stick is.

The Hall contacted Minnesota State and wants a memento of Harrison's short-handed hat trick from Friday night. The the sixth short-handed hat trick in D-I history, it will be displayed as part of a 2008 year in review display and then archived and brought out for traveling exhibits as well as a college-hockey display.

As it turns out Harrison's wasn't the first natural short-handed hat trick. Check out what C.J. Young did 20 years ago (thanks, CHN).

Meanwhile, Harrison was named WCHA defensive player of the week for his feat.

Check back later for more information as well as my column in Wednesday's Free Press.

Shane,

C.J. Young's was natural, and it was in 47 seconds! - I'm writing something on it now.
