Calgary Flames forward Jarome Iginla named NHL first star of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Calgary Flames right-winger Jarome Iginla was named the NHL's first star of the week Monday after recording six points over three games.

He had four goals and two assists to help the Flames record three victories last week.

Minnesota Wild goalie Matt Hackett earned the second star and Washington Capitals defenceman John Carlson took the third star.

Hackett went 2-0-0 last week with a 1.01 goals-against average and .974 save percentage.

Carlson had seven points (one goal, six assists) to help the Capitals win two of three games over the stretch.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
