Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby has been named the NHL’s No. 1 star of the week for the period that ended Sunday.
He had 11 points in four games, including 10 during the three-game road trip that ended with a 5-3 victory in Chicago Sunday. That included four-point efforts in Minnesota last Thursday and another four-pointer against the Blackhawks, sandwiching a two-assist performance in Winnipeg Saturday.
St. Louis left winger Pavel Buchnevich was the league’s No. 2 star and Seattle goalie Martin Jones was No. 3.
Sidney Crosby also was honored as the NHL’s first star after the first week of the season.
