An unselfish Jason Pominville captured the first star in the latest weekly honors.

The Minnesota Wild forward was named the top star of the week after leading all players with six assists and eight points, helping his club go 3-0-1 in four games.

Pominville's week was highlighted by a two-goal, two-assist night against the Winnipeg Jets. The 34-year-old now has points in 11 of his last 12 games and 17 points over that span.

St. Louis Blues goaltender Jake Allen earned the league's second star. Allen was perfect in three games with a 1.00 goals-against average, a .967 save percentage, and one shutout.

Allen has helped the Blues bounce back after the firing of Ken Hitchcock, having gone 4-1-0 with a .953 save percentage in those games.

Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson was named the third star after matching a league-high with five goals and finishing second with seven points in four games.

Arvidsson's week included two three-point games, including his first career hat trick in a 7-4 loss to the Florida Panthers on Friday night. The 23-year-old now leads the Predators with 18 goals and is one point back of Ryan Johansen's 40 for the team lead.
