Jets captain named NHL star of the week

  • Print

Winnipeg Jets captain Andrew Ladd has been named the NHL’s first star of the week.

New York Rangers centre Brad Richards and San Jose Sharks centre Logan Couture were second and third stars of the week ending Sunday.

Ladd led the NHL with eight points and six assists in three games to help the Jets pick up five out of a possible six points in their push for a playoff berth.

The left-winger recorded three points (2-1-3), plus the shootout clincher, in a 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning April 16. Ladd then tied a career high with three assists, including the primary helper on Dustin Byfuglien’s overtime winner, in a 4-3 triumph over the Carolina Hurricanes April 18.

He capped the week by collecting two assists, including the primary helper on Bryan Little’s game-tying goal with 2:01 left in regulation, in a 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Islanders Saturday.

Ladd is currently on a career-high seven-game point streak (4-10—14) that dates to April 4. In 45 games this season, the 27-year-old Maple Ridge, B.C., native leads the Jets in goals (18), assists (28) and points (46).
