Tyler Seguin continues to sparkle in his first season in Dallas.

In Thursday's game against the Vancouver Canucks, the 22-year-old registered a hat-trick (and two assists), tying a franchise record in the process.

The third goal was Seguin's 28th of the season, one short of his career-high (set in 2011-12) with 21 games left on the schedule. 

(Note: watch to the end of the video to witness a linesman rocking a cowboy hat.)

The five total points on the night raise his total to 63, so it's reasonable to assume he'll also top the 67 points he posted two seasons ago.

Safe to say general manager Jim Nill and the Stars are quite pleased with the youngster's progress this season.
