Martin Jones has had an up-and-down season with the Sharks this year, but San Jose's goaltender ended November on a high note.
Jones, 29, was named the NHL's Third Star of the Week on Monday.

The veteran goalie went 3-0-0 with a 1.98 goals-against average and .935 save percentage in three Sharks wins. He only allowed six goals while saving 87 of 93 shot attempts against him in the three victories.
Jones is 12-8-1 this season in front of the net for the Sharks. He has an .896 save percentage -- tied with last season's career-low -- and has a career-worst 3.03 goals-against average.
The Sharks, however, finished November winning five of their final six games as Jones elevated his play. San Jose now is third in the Pacific Division, and will need Jones to continue to improve to climb up the standings.
