Bang on. His first came in the very first game in NHL history on December 19th, 1917 (Joe Malone scored 5 goals in the same game) and he proceeded to score all 25 in a nine year span. His final hat-trick coming on February 18th, 1926.

Richard scored his record-tying hat-trick on December 20th, 1955 and finally broke the record on October 13th, 1957.
