Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri scored his first career hat trick in Toronto's 5-4 overtime win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night. 
Nazem Kadri is doing everything in his power to prove he belongs in the NHL.

The Maple Leafs forward scored his first career hat trick in Toronto's 5-4 overtime win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night. 

His first goal of the night came in the first period, when he used a cheeky toe drag and then ripped a wrist shot past Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov. 

He followed that up midway through the second period when a wrister just inside the blue-line looked like it fooled Nabokov to beat the goalie on his glove side. 

But that wasn't enough for the six-foot, 188-pound forward. He completed the hat trick six minutes later when he eluded the Islanders' defence with some nifty stick-handling and found the back of the net.

The 22-year-old London, Ont. native now has three goals and four assists in his last four games and leads the team with 21 points.
