Jovanovski Notches First NHL Hat Trick
Wednesday, November 3, 2010

GLENDALE, Arizona --- Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski scored his first career hat trick tonight in a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators at Arena.

The hat trick was Jovanovski's first in 979 career NHL games with Florida, Vancouver and Phoenix and the first by a defenseman in franchise history (Winnipeg Jets and Phoenix Coyotes) in 2,415 games.

"It was nice to contribute offensively and nice to get a win," Jovanovski said.

The 6-foot-3, 218 pound Jovanovski has recorded 131-345-476 in 979 career NHL games. Jovanovski was drafted by the Florida Panthers in the first round (first overall) in the 1994 Entry Draft.

The Coyotes next game will be at Dallas on Friday, November 5. The team will face Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday, November 6 at Arena.
