BLOG: Klefbom is NHL Second Star of Week

by Chris Wescott / Head Writer

Oilers defenceman Oscar Klefbom has been named the NHL Second Star of the Week for the week ending ending April 9.

The blueliner led the NHL with seven assists in four games to help the Oilers record three victories. Klefbom had a point in Edmonton's loss to Los Angeles on April 4. Then he recorded a career-high four assists in a 4-2 win over San Jose on April 6. The four assists was the most by an Oilers defenceman since Chris Pronger on December 31, 2005.

Klefbom also notched an assist in both meetings with the Vancouver Canucks - both wins for the Oil.

Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson was the NHL's First Star of the Week, while Tampa Bay centre Brayden Point was the Third Star.

Klefbom recorded career highs of 12 goals and 26 assists this season.
