Victor Hedman scored in all three games last week and tied for the team lead with five points to earn Player of the Week honors. 

Hedman scored the game-opening goal in Tuesday's overtime win over the Predators in Nashville. Hedman fired a shot from the point that deflected off a Nashville defender and past Pekka Rinne. 

In Tuesday's loss to the Wild, Hedman scored a power play goal late in the second period to tie game at three. Again it was a shot from the point that got through traffic, this time beating Alex Stalock.

Hedman's best performance of the week came in Saturday's 7-1 blowout win over the Sharks. He scored a key goal to push the Bolts' lead to four early in the third period and added assists on both of Steven Stamkos' goals. Saturday was Hedman's second three-point performance of the season. 

With points in all three games, Hedman extended his personal point streak to five games. Hedman's 27 points so far this season rank fourth among NHL defensemen.
