In a lockout shortened 2012-13, there were 10 GHHTs including one during the playoffs. Four players earned their first, while Brenden Morrow notched his sixth in his career. The league leader was Wayne Simmons who had a busy week in February, grabbing two in three games. Brenden Dillion scored his first career goal then same game he earned his first GHHT. Teams were 10-1 when a player had a GHHT, with the one loss being Evgeni Malkin and the Penguins in the first round of the playoffs.
