Jagr, Haula, Anderson named NHL’s three stars of the week
Florida’s Jaromir Jagr, Minnesota’s Erik Haula and Ottawa’s Craig Anderson have been named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending Feb. 21, the league announced on Monday.
Jagr scored three goals in three games to move into sole possession of third place in NHL history and help the Atlantic Division-leading Panthers (34-18-7, 75 points) pick up five out of a possible six standings points.
Haula shared first place in the NHL with 2-5—7 in four games to lead the Wild (27-22-10, 64 points) to a sweep of their four contests, including a victory in the 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.
Anderson posted a 3-0-0 record with a 1.58 goals-against average and .951 save percentage to backstop the Senators (28-26-6, 62 points) to three straight wins.
You can expect to see Jagr’s name in the news in the coming weeks as well. He’s just six points away from passing Gordie Howe for third all-time in NHL scoring (Jagr’s currently on 1,845 points; Howe has 1,850).
Jagr also recently passed Brett Hull for third all-time in goals, with 742.
