Hat-Trick Heroes is a video series that takes a look back at some of the finest scoring performances from the FIH Hockey Pro League over the seasons.

In today's video we feature the hat-trick scored in the recent Christchurch mini-tournament of the 2022/23 FIH Hockey Pro League season, by Joel Rintala. This hat-trick came in just his second international appearance for the Kookaburras! The Australian forward scored all three goals from penalty corners, going to his right for the first, left for the second and straight down the middle for his third. A bright future lies ahead for the Kookaburras' young star, who also grabbed his second international hat-trick in his third international appearance!
