NEW YORK — Boston Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron, Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly and Carolina Hurricanes right-wing Sebastian Aho have been named the NHL's three stars of the week.
Bergeron led the NHL with nine points (four goals, five assists) as the Bruins won all three of their games last week to extend their winning streak to four contests. His week included his first career hat trick in a 6-3 triumph over the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 8.
Rielly posted a league-leading six assists and added a goal, as the Maple Leafs also extended their winning streak to four games with a 3-0-0 week. Rielly has a career-high four assists in a 7-4 victory against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.
Aho extended his season-opening point streak to six games, with three goals and four assists over three contests, as the Hurricanes picked up a pair of wins.
