Roman Josi was a driving force behind his club collecting seven out of a possible eight points on their recent four-game road trip, and the NHL has taken notice.
Nashville's captain was named the League's Second Star of the Week on Monday after he posted six goals across those four outings, including two on Saturday night in Boston to help the Preds to a 4-3 overtime victory.
Josi also added an assist over the past week in the midst of his third point streak of four games this season. The blueliner is also on a career-best four-game goal streak, joining Mattias Ekholm as the only other Preds defenseman to do so in club history.
Josi is tied for first in goals (13), tied for second in power-play goals (4), second in shots (130), third in points (33), tied for seventh in power-play points (12) and tied for 10th in assists (20) among NHL defensemen this season.
The month of December has yet to conclude, and Josi is already just two goals from matching his career high of 15, which he set in 2018-19 and 2014-15. His performance on Saturday was Josi's fourth two-goal game of 2019-20, the most among NHL defensemen. He also established a career high for multi-goal games in a season.
It's the second time this season Josi has been named the NHL's Second Star of the Week; he also earned the honor back on Oct. 28.
