Seguin, Anisimov, and Henrique named NHL three stars


Stars center Tyler Seguin, Blue Jackets center Artem Anisimov and Devils center Adam Henrique are the NHL’s three stars of the week.


Seguin led the NHL with nine points (4-5-9) as the Stars (31-23-10) earned six of a possible eight points for the week, strengthening their hold on the second Wild Card position in the Western Conference.

Anisimov recorded four goals, including three game-winners, as the Blue Jackets (33-26-5) recorded three victories in four starts to secure the second Wild Card position in the Eastern Conference.

Henrique tallied a League-leading five goals last week, powering the Devils (28-24-13) to two wins in three starts.

Lots of focus on Seguin this season, his first in Dallas after being traded from Boston in July. The 22-year-old has responded well, with 29 goals and 37 assists, his 66 points ranking fifth overall in the NHL.

With Seguin, 24-year-old Jamie Benn and 19-year-old Valeri Nichushkin, the Stars have one of the most promising young forward trios in the NHL.
