Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk has been named the NHL's Third Star of the Week for Jan. 20-26.
Dubnyk -- who represented the Central Division at the 2019 NHL All-Star weekend -- earned two wins for the Wild (26-21-3, 55 points), compiling a 2.00 goals-against average and .926 save percentage in two starts. He made 30 saves in a 4-2 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights Jan. 21, followed by 20 stops in a 5-2 triumph against the Colorado Avalanche Jan. 23.
His 50 saves on 54 shots last week helped the Wild (26-21-3) stay in third place in the Central Division heading into the All-Star break and the team's bye week this week.

Dubnyk then turned aside 25 shots across a pair of contests at Saturday's All-Star Game, including 19 in the Central's 10‑4 win over the Pacific Division in the semifinals. The 32-year-old Regina, Sask., native shares fifth place in the NHL with 20 victories in 2018-19 (2.57 GAA, .913 SV%, 1 SO), his fifth 20-win season in as many campaigns with Minnesota.
Dubnyk is 7-2-0 in his past nine starts and 6-1-0 in his past seven road starts. His All-Star appearance was the third of his career, the most in franchise history.
This marks the sixth time Dubnyk has been named a Star of the Week with the Wild.
Minnesota is currently in the midst of its bye week and returns to game action at 7 p.m. Friday at Dallas in a game that will be televised on FOX Sports North. The Wild's next home game is Saturday at 7 p.m. against Chicago on NBC.
Both games can be heard on KFAN 100.3, the Wild Radio Network and the Wild NHL App.
