Crosby Honored As NHL’s No. 1 Star of Week



Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby is the NHL’s No 1 star for the first week of the season.

He had a total of six points (two goals, four assists) in the Penguins’ 6-2 victories against Arizona and Tampa Bay.

Edmonton center Connor McDavid was honored as the second star, while Dallas goalie Jake Oettinger was No. 3.

In addition to taking the early lead in the league scoring race, Crosby passed Phil Housley for 20th place on the NHL’s all-time list by raising his career total to 896 and Doug Gilmour for 19th place on the league’s all-time points list with 1,415.

Crosby, who is in his franchise-record 18th season with the Penguins, enters their game in Montreal tonight with 423 career multiple-point games, the most among active players and 11th in NHL history. He has had 101 more games in which he has gotten two or more points than games in which he has been held off the scoresheet.

McDavid had four goals and one assist in the Oilers’ first two games, while Oettinger went 2-0, with a 1.00 goals-against average and .968 save percentage.
