The National Hockey League unveiled the three players who stood out the most during the month of December. Despite many games postponed, several players have distinguished themselves in recent weeks.

Vancouver Canucks goaltender Thatcher Demko received the third star. The goalkeeper was excellent, with a record of seven wins and one loss in December. He also kept an average of goals against 1.72.

The second star was awarded to Canadiens alumni Max Pacioretty. The forward was all flames, he who amassed 16 points, including 10 goals in only 12 games.

Since the return of some important elements to Las Vegas, the Golden Knights have found their way back to victory and are currently leading the Pacific Division. Peter DeBoer's team beat the Ducks and Flames with a total of 44 points.

The former captain of the CH has only 21 points since the beginning of the year due to injuries that did not spare him. He still ranks second on his team for goals scored.

It was Toronto Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews who finally received the final honour of December. The forward held an average of two points per game, winning 14 points in seven games.

After a slow start to the season, the American has returned to his usual pace, with 33 points in 28 games.
