The Gordie Howe Hat Trick has company.

Red Wings rookie Dylan Larkin continues to amaze, and introduced us to a new feat on Friday night.

The 19-year-old chipped a tooth, scored a goal, and registered an assist in Detroit's 3-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Larkin took a high stick to the face at the 12:43 mark of the third period. On his next shift, he scored a goal to break the scoreless tie. 

Later in the third, he set up Henrik Zetterberg on a goal that sealed the game.

"It woke me up. Maybe I should take a stick in the face every game," Larkin said on the Red Wings postgame show on Fox Sports Detroit.

'Dylan Larkin' was trending nationally on Twitter Friday night.
