Carolina Hurricanes winger Jeff Skinner named NHL first star of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Carolina Hurricanes left-winger Jeff Skinner was named NHL first star of the week Monday after leading all players with nine points last week.

Skinner had six goals and three assists over the stretch to help the Hurricanes win four games in a row.

St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott was named second star and Minnesota Wild defenceman Ryan Suter was the third star.

Elliott posted a 3-0-0 record last week with a 1.00 goals-against average, a .962 save percentage and one shutout. Suter led all defencemen with four goals and was tied for first among blue-liners with six points as the Wild won two of three games.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
