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

He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
