look up any word, like blumpkin:
The inglorious feat of having three lockouts occur during your tenure as NHL Commissioner.
With the lockout becoming official on September 15, 2012, Gary Bettman would oversee the third lockout since he became commissioner in 1993.

Like a hockey player scoring three goals in one game, this accomplishment would be named after him: the Gary Bettman Hat Trick.
