Stempniak, acquired from Toronto at the trade deadline, also recorded three assists last month and had a plus-7 rating.

Sedin led all NHL players with 24 points (four goals, 20 assists) to help the Canucks win nine of 15 games. He concluded the month with a five-game point streak, moving into first place in the NHL scoring race with 104 points (29-75) in 76 games.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
