The NHL season may still be two days away, but the KHL season is in full swing - and Monday a couple of goal speed records were set. First, there was Wojtek Wolski who is playing his second season with Nizhny Novgorod Torpedo. His team won its game against Sibir 3-2 and Wolski scored all three goals. What made it special, though, was that Wolski scored the natural hat trick in a KHL record 1:47. Here they are:

But that wasn't the only record to be set on Monday. With Severstal Cherepovets trailing its game against Metallurg Novokuznetsk 1-0 in the last three minutes of the first period, 31-year-old Yuri Trubachyov scored twice - in eight seconds.

Severstal ended up winning the game 7-3. Both KHL records are pretty impressive - but the NHL still has them beat. The fastest hat trick in NHL history belongs to Bill Mosienko who scored three goals in 21 seconds for the Chicago Blackhawks against the New York Rangers in 1952. And the fastest two goals in NHL history? Nels Stewart (1931) and Deron Quint (1995) hold the record at four seconds.
