This opening week was very interesting. It was jam packed with headlines, injuries, and suspensions. Despite all of this, many players were able to rise above this and put together impressive weeks.
First Star – Kari Lehtonen (G, Dallas) – Kari put up impressive numbers this week starting off the season starting Dallas off to a 4-0 start. He posted a 4-0 record with .932 SV% and a 2.39 GAA. Lehtonen has been key so far for Dallas and will need to continue to play strong for their success to continue.
Second Star – Marian Hossa (RW, Chicago) – Marian Hossa has been on fire so far for the depleted Chicago Blackhawks. With nine points including a league leading five goals in his first six games, Hossa has shut up all critics of the Hawks not being able to contend this year.
Third Star – Ryan Getzlaf (C, Anaheim) – Despite the Ducks getting off to a slow start, Getzlaf is proof that the future is bright. With six assists and eight points in his first six games of the season, Getzlaf has been able to put up points even though the team couldn’t. Look for the Ducks to build on Getzlaf’s success and put together a winning season.
