Ten points in four games was good enough for Carolina Hurricanes winger Teuvo Teravainen to be named the NHL's first star of the week Monday.

Teravainen notched five goals and five assists in four games, including a hat trick against against the Dallas Stars. The diminutive forward is a big reason for Carolina's resurgence, as the Hurricanes have won back-to-back games and five of their last seven.

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen took home this week's second-star honors, as he's been a brick wall of late, posting back-to-back shutouts in his last two games. Across his three starts last week, Andersen went a perfect 3-0-0 while registering an unreal save percentage of .982.

Rounding out the group is Colorado Avalanche pivot Nathan MacKinnon, whose week was highlighted by a five-point, single-game performance against the Washington Capitals. In three games for the Avs, MacKinnon racked up two goals and five assists.
