On Thursday night, the 10-gallon hat topped the hockey world as Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars scored his fourth career hat trick. While regular ball caps rained down from the stands, one spectator threw a black cowboy hat onto the ice.
It was picked up by referee Derek Amell, who was on the lookout for a new lid:
UPDATE: The owner of the cowboy hat has been identified as Conrad Shindler, who posted his account of the toss on social media.
