Lehtera, Price, and Forsberg are NHL’s three stars of the week

Blues center Jori Lehtera, Canadiens goalie Carey Price and Predators center Filip Forsberg have been named the NHL’s three stars for the past week.

From NHL.com:

Lehtera tied for the League lead in goals (four) and points (six) and posted a +5 rating as the Blues (12-4-1, 25 points) won all three games for the week to move into first place in the Central Division.

Price posted a 3-0-0 record, 1.33 goals-against average, .950 save percentage and one shutout as the Canadiens (14-4-1, 29 points) won all four games for the week to move into first place in the overall NHL standings.

Forsberg tied for second among all scorers last week with five points (2-3–5) as the Predators (11-4-2, 24 points) climbed to second place in the Central Division by gaining four of a possible six standings points.

While Lehtera isn’t a rookie by the NHL’s definition (he was 26 at the start of the season), this is his first year in the league. Forsberg, meanwhile, is a rookie. And at this point, he’s the leading candidate to win the Calder Trophy. (Though Aaron Ekblad can’t be overlooked either.)
