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

From NHL.com:

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.
