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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
