Kane, Seguin, Condon named NHL’s three stars of the week


Chicago’s Patrick Kane, Dallas’ Tyler Seguin and Montreal’s Mike Condon have been named the NHL’s three stars for the week ending Nov. 8, the league announced on Monday.


Kane shared first in the NHL with four goals and led the League with five assists and nine points to help the Blackhawks (8-6-1, 17 points) gain five of a possible eight standings points.

Seguin tied for first in the NHL with four goals and ranked second with seven points as the Stars (12-3-0, 24 points) won three of four games en route to their best 15-game start to a season in franchise history.

Filling in for injured starter Carey Price, Condon posted a 2-0-1 record with a 1.66 goals-against average and .934 save percentage to lead the Canadiens (13-2-1, 27 points) to their best 16-game start to a season in the franchise’s 98-year NHL history.

The Condon story continues to get better by the day. The undrafted Princeton product worked his way up from the ECHL to AHL and, last year, carried his first-ever full American League workload with Montreal’s affiliate in Hamilton.

From there, he beat out Dustin Tokarski in training camp this year to win the No. 2 gig behind Carey Price. Since Price went down to injury last week,  Condon has carried the Habs’ starting job with aplomb and has yet to lose in regulation.
