In the last few minutes, the NHL announced some great news for the Montreal Canadiens organization and its fans.

The captain, forward Nick Suzuki, has been named the NHL's third star of the week. Solid!

"Jacob Markstrom (Calgary), Sergei Bobrovsky (Florida), and Nick Suzuki (Montreal Canadiens) have been named the NHL's 'three stars' for the week ending February 11th." - NHL

Congratulations, Nick! He racked up six points, including four goals, in three games.


We even have an official statement from the Habs for the occasion:

"MONTREAL – The NHL announced Monday that forward Nick Suzuki was named the League's Third Star of the Week for the seven-day stretch ending on Feb. 11.

Jacob Markstrom and Sergei Bobrovsky were named the NHL's First and Second Stars of the Week, respectively.
The 24-year-old has been productive on all fronts, collecting four goals and two assists in three games.

In his first game back from the 2024 NHL All-Star Weekend, the centerman found the back of the net on two occasions and added a helper to lead the Canadiens past the Capitals. He was named the first star of the game.

With the Dallas Stars in town on Saturday afternoon, Suzuki got on the scoresheet twice (1G, 1A). His performance earned him the second star of the game.
Finally, on Sunday, the captain tallied Montreal's first goal of the contest against the St. Louis Blues and extended his point streak to seven consecutive games.

Note that this is a first this season for the CH (in 2023-24).
