NEW YORKSt. Louis Blues center David Backes, Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov and Florida Panthers left wing Jonathan Huberdeau have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Jan. 11.


Backes led the NHL with five goals and eight points in three games, posting three consecutive multi-point performances to power the Blues (26-13-3, 55 points) to a trio of victories. He opened the week by scoring four straight goals in a 6-0 triumph over the Arizona Coyotes Jan. 6. It marked Backes' second career four-goal game and first in nearly six years (also April 2, 2009 at DET). Backes also became the first player to register four consecutive goals in one game – for any team – since Nov. 11, 2005 (Ilya Kovalchuk) and just the second player in Blues history to accomplish that feat (Red Berenson: Nov. 7, 1968). Backes followed that performance with two more multi-point games: 1-1—2 in a 7-2 win over the San Jose Sharks Jan. 8 and 0-2—2 in a 5-4 shootout victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Jan. 10. The 30-year-old Minneapolis, Minn., native ranks sixth on the Blues with 14-13—27 in 41 appearances this season, including 7-7—14 in his past 12 outings.

Sunday, 01.11.2015 / 11:27 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Teemu Selanne said he was going to be a "tough guy" and wouldn't cry at his jersey retirement ceremony, but it was not difficult to notice him getting choked up at times.

"I didn't cry, but it was close," Selanne said afterward. "The toughest part to keep the emotions was when I was walking down the stairs (for his entrance onto the stage). I think the whole thing just hit so hard. Plus, I have to concentrate that I don't fall down. But what a night. I never stop wondering the impact with the people. It's all around me. It's very special."

Selanne became the first player in Anaheim Ducks history to have his jersey retired Sunday night during a touching presentation at Honda Center.

The ceremony showcased the genuineness of "The Finnish Flash," whose No. 8 was raised to the rafters in front of a crowd of 17,356.
