NHL: Calgary Flames at Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

For the second time this season Johnny Gaudreau has taken home one of the NHL’s Stars Of The Week. This afternoon Gaudreau took home the second of the three available spots for his play over the last 7 days.

Gaudreau’s play is a hefty part of why the Flames are 3-1-0 on their current 6 game road trip. In 4 games last week the star forward had 7 points, including 5 assists. Gaudreau now has 66 points, putting him 3 points behind the Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov (69) for the league lead. His 48 assists on the season are also second in the NHL.

Claude Giroux took home the top spot and Devan Dubnyk took home the 3rd spot for their play over the past 7 days.
