Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk
was instrumental in leading the club to a clean sweep of western Canada last week and has been named the National Hockey League's Third Star for his efforts.
The 28-year-old went 3-0-0 in three road starts last week stopping 88 of 91 shots faced for a 1.00 goals-against average, a .967 save percentage and one shutout. He made 23 saves in a 2-1 win at Edmonton (1/27), stopped all 30 shots faced in a 1-0 win at Calgary (1/29) and made 35 saves in a 4-2 win at Vancouver (2/1) to help the Wild earn three straight regulation wins for the first time this season. Since coming to the Wild from Arizona in exchange for a third-round pick on Jan. 14, Dubnyk is 5-1-0 with a 1.71 GAA, .935 SV% and 2 SO in seven starts with Minnesota (stopped 157-of-168 shots faced).
Montreal's Carey Price was the NHL's First Star, while Tampa Bay's Cedric Paquette was the League's Second Star.
