On Mondays, chicagoblackhawks.com will highlight players who stood out for their minor-league, junior, college or European teams in the previous week's action. All prospect/system stats will be updated weekly throughout the season.
1st Star: C Dylan Sikura, Northeastern (H-EAST)
The Line: 1GP, 2G, 2A
Sikura led the way for Northeastern in a big 5-2 win over Boston College last Saturday, tallying twice and adding a pair of assists to match a single-game career high. Both of his goals were recorded on the power play, and one of his helpers came on the eventual game-winner; he shares the NCAA lead with seven goals with the man advantage this season, while his 1.57 points per game (22 points in 14 appearances) rank second in the nation.
2nd Star: D Carl Dahlstrom, Rockford (AHL)
The Line: 2GP, 1G, 4A
Dahlstrom's offensive outburst continued last week with five points in two games for the IceHogs. The 22-year-old picked up two helpers in Rockford's 4-1 win over Grand Rapids on Friday, then collected a goal and two assists the next night in in a 7-2 win over the Griffins. Dahlstrom has 10 points over his last seven games and paces Rockford defensemen with 15 points (2G, 13A) in 24 tilts this season.
3rd Star: LW Tomas Jurco, Rockford (AHL)
The Line: 2GP, 2G, 1A
Jurco stretched his goal streak to four games with tallies in both of Rockford's games last week and added an assist in Friday's win.

Jurco also ranks first on the team with 85 shots on goal this season.
