Jonathan Toews has been named the NHL's Third Star of the Week for the week of Jan. 13.
Amidst the Patrick Kane 1,000th point celebration on Sunday night, the Captain pushed his point streak to six games, including a nine-point performance (3G, 6A) in four games during the week ending.
Toews' scoring total led all skaters last week to help the Blackhawks (24-20-6, 54 points) win all four contests and move within three points of the final Wild card position in the Western Conference.

No. 19 opened the week with a three-point night (1G, 2A), including his 15th career overtime winner, in a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Jan. 14 and followed it up with an assist in a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 15. He closed the week with two goals and two assists in a 6-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday and added an assist in a 5-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.
Toews, a 31-year-old native of Winnipeg, Man., ranks second on the Blackhawks with 44 points (14G, 30A) in 50 games this season. He boosted his career totals to 799 points (341G, 458A) in 923 games and now sits one point shy of becoming the sixth player in Blackhawks history to record 800 points with the franchise.
