NHL “Three Stars” for December 2018: Lightning’s Kucherov, Flames’ Gaudreau, Oilers’ McDavid

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY NHL PUBLIC RELATIONS; COURTESY NHLmedia.com

 

 

NEW YORK – Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Nikita Kucherov, Calgary Flames left wing Johnny Gaudreau and Edmonton Oilerscenter Connor McDavid have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the month of December.

 

FIRST STAR – NIKITA KUCHEROV, RW, TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

Kucherov topped the NHL with 21 assists and 30 points in 14 outings (9-21—30), averaging 2.14 points per game to power the League-leading Lightning (31-7-2, 64 points) to a 13-0-1 December – franchise records for wins and points in any calendar month. Kucherov, who also set Tampa Bay records for assists and points in a single month, became the first NHL player to register 30-plus points in any calendar month since Jaromir Jagr achieved the feat with the Pittsburgh Penguins in March 2001 (15-16—31 in 15 GP). Kucherov did so by finding the scoresheet in all but one of his 14 December appearances, including 11 straight to close the month (7-16—23). That was highlighted by 1-4—5 Dec. 22 at EDM, career highs for assists and points in a game as well as the 12th five-point performance in Lightning history. The 25-year-old Maykop, Russia, native paces the NHL with 46 assists and 65 points in 40 total games this season. He also sits second in the League with 23 power-play points (8-15—23), 10 of which came in December (4-6—10).

 

SECOND STAR – JOHNNY GAUDREAU, LW, CALGARY FLAMES

Gaudreau ranked second in the NHL with 11 goals and 26 points in 14 contests (11‑15—26) to propel the Pacific Division-leading Flames (24-12-4, 52 points) to a 9-3-2 December. Gaudreau collected points in 10 of his 14 appearances, including nine multi-point efforts. Among them were two four-point performances (Dec. 4 at CBJ: 2-2—4 and Dec. 31 vs. SJS: 2-2—4); four multi-goal outings, including his fourth career hat trick (Dec. 27 at WPG); and two additional three-point games (Dec. 12 vs. PHI: 1-2—3 and Dec. 16 at STL: 2-1—3). The 25-year-old Salem, N.J., native – who also shared third place in December with a +15 rating – places fifth in the NHL this season with 21-34—55 in 40 total appearances. He is the first member of the Flames with 55 or more points through the team’s opening 40 games of a season since 1992-93, when Gary Roberts achieved the feat (26-29—55 in 40 GP).

 

THIRD STAR – CONNOR McDAVID, C, EDMONTON OILERS

McDavid ranked third in the NHL with 8-16—24 in 13 outings to guide the Oilers (18-18-3, 39 points) to points in half of their December games (6-7-1). McDavid found the scoresheet in all but one of his 13 appearances, including four straight multi-point games to close the month (2-7—9) and his sixth career four-point performance Dec. 7 vs. MIN (1-3—4). He also hit a pair of career milestones, becoming the ninth player in League history to reach the 300-point mark (Dec. 13 at WPG) and the sixth player in NHL history to hit the 200-assist plateau (Dec. 22 vs. TBL) prior to his 22nd birthday. The 21-year-old Richmond Hill, Ont., native places fourth in the League with 21-37—58 in 38 total contests this season. McDavid, the No. 1 overall selection from the 2015 NHL Draft, also leads the League with 1.27 points per game since making his debut in 2015-16 (108-206—314 in 247 GP).

Solid December 2018 nets Canucks’ Pettersson NHL Rookie of the Month

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY NHL PUBLIC RELATIONS; COURTESY NHLmedia.com

 

(courtesy NHL PR)

 

NEW YORK – Vancouver Canucks center Elias Pettersson, who led all rookies in goals (6), assists (11), points (17), game-winning goals (4) and plus/minus (tied, +8) in 14 outings, has been named the NHL’s “Rookie of the Month” for December.

 

Pettersson edged Tampa Bay Lightning center Anthony Cirelli (5-4—9 in 14 GP), Toronto Maple Leafs left wing Andreas Johnsson (3-6—9 in 13 GP) and Ottawa Senators center Colin White (3-6—9 in 14 GP) for the honor.

 

Pettersson, who also was named Rookie of the Month for October, registered at least one point in 10 of his 14 December appearances – including a seven-game streak from Dec. 4-16 (4-9—13) – to power Vancouver to an 8-5-1 month.

 

Pettersson notched four multi-point performances, highlighted by his second five-point effort of the season Dec. 9 at STL (1-4—5). In doing so, he became the sixth rookie in the NHL’s expansion era (since 1967‑68) to record multiple five-point games within a single season – and the second to achieve the feat before the end of December (also Bryan Trottier: 1975-76 w/ NYI).

 

The 20-year-old Sundsvall, Sweden, native – who was selected fifth overall in the 2017 NHL Draft – has played in 36 total games this season, topping rookies in goals (19), assists (20), points (39), power-play goals (tied, 5), power-play assists (7), power-play points (12), game-winning goals (6) and shooting percentage (26.0%)

Program ambassador Jeremy Roenick, NHL veteran and current NHL analyst for NBC Sports, returns as the spokesperson for Kraft Hockeyville™ USA. “I’m honored to be back supporting this incredible grassroots hockey program,” said Roenick. “Kraft shines a spotlight on local communities, and how important they are to youth hockey. I’m looking forward to another incredible year.”

Kraft Hockeyville™ USA is proud to partner with the NHLPA, the NHL and NBC Sports Group to support the search for hockey communities in the U.S. with the most inspirational stories and strongest voter participation. The 2019 program was announced live during today’s NBC broadcast of the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® outdoor game featuring the Boston Bruins against the Chicago Blackhawks at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind.

 

How Kraft HockeyvilleTM USA 2019 Works

The nomination application is the first step for communities across the country to share unique stories about their local rink, teams, hockey spirit and passion. Throughout the submission process, hockey communities will be asked to bring their stories to life online through the mobile-friendly platform at www.KraftHockeyville.com, to earn Rally Points by adding notes, uploading photos and videos, tweeting from the community page and interacting with the community online. Complete contest rules and how to enter are available on the website.

*Period 1 (January 1–March 2, 2019) – Local communities submit a story on why they deserve to win Kraft HockeyvilleTM USA on www.KraftHockeyville.com. Once posted, users should activate their community online to rally behind the local rink by boosting their digital Rally Points. Communities are judged based on a combination of total Rally Points and best story.
*Period 2 (March 24–30, 2019) – After the judges read through each rink’s story and calculate the total Rally Points of each submission, the top four finalists will be announced on March 24, 2019. The four finalists will then have one week to rally their community and hockey fans nationwide in preparation for the live voting event.

*Period 3 (March 30–31, 2019) –The four finalist communities will compete to receive as many votes as possible within the 28-hour voting phase. New for 2019, Kraft Heinz is giving away a trip for two to a Stanley Cup® Final game.

The winner of Kraft Hockeyville™ USA 2019 will be announced on March 31, 2019 during an intermission of an NHL game on NBCSN and will be awarded the grand prize of an opportunity to host an NHL Pre-Season Game and receive $150,000 in rink upgrades from Kraft Heinz.

2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic Postgame Notes

Boston Bruins 4 at Chicago Blackhawks 2, Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Ind.

 

KURALY, BRUINS RALLY FOR WINTER CLASSIC VICTORY

Dublin, Ohio, native Sean Kuraly scored the tiebreaking goal with 9:40 remaining in regulation to help the Bruins rally from a pair of one-goal deficits and defeat the Blackhawks in front of a sell-out crowd of 76,126 in the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind.

 

Kuraly, who scored the overtime winner in Boston’s final outing of 2018 (Dec. 29 at BUF), became the first Bruins player to register a tiebreaking, winning goal in consecutive team games since Brad Marchand did so in three straight contests from March 3-8, 2018.

 

Kuraly now has three game-winning goals in the regular season (122 GP) as well as one in the playoffs (16 GP) – that was scored in double-overtime of Game 5 in the 2017 First Round at OTT (2-0—2).

 

Kuraly has recorded three goals in his past five outings after totaling one through his first 34 games of 2018-19.

 

With the victory, the Bruins (22-14-4, 48 points) – who started the day on the outside of the playoff picture – leapfrogged the idle Sabres (21-13-6, 48 points) and Canadiens (21-14-5, 47 points) to move into third place in the Atlantic Division.

 

COMEBACK TREND CONTINUES IN OUTDOOR GAMES, 2018-19

The Bruins staged the 12th comeback victory in the NHL’s 26 regular-season outdoor games (46.2%). They also overcame a deficit in their other outdoor win, rallying from a 1-0 hole to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime in the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park.

 

Overall, 275 of the 612 games contested thus far in the 2018-19 season (44.9%) have seen a team overcome a deficit of at least one goal to win.

 

RASK, PASTRNAK HIT MILESTONES IN BRUINS’ WIN

* Playing in his 469th NHL game (all w/ BOS), Tuukka Rask made 36 saves to earn his first outdoor win (1-1-0) and surpass Tiny Thompson (468) for the most regular-season appearances by a goaltender in Bruins history. Rask’s 248 career wins rank second in franchise history behind Thompson (252).

 

David Pastrnak posted 1-1—2 in his outdoor game debut, raising his season totals to 24-26—50 in 40 outings. He became the first Boston player to reach the 50-point milestone within the team’s first 40 games of a season since 2006‑07, when Marc Savard hit the number in the Bruins’ 39th contest (14-38—52). Pastrnak’s 24 goals are tied for fourth in the NHL this season, behind only Alex Ovechkin (29), John Tavares (26) and Jeff Skinner (26).

WINTER CLASSIC QUICK HITS

* The Bruins improved to 267-239-83 (617 points) in their 589 regular-season meetings with the Blackhawks, who fell to 243-265-81 (567 points) in the head-to-head series. The teams face off one more time in 2018-19, on Feb. 12 at TD Garden.

 

* Blackhawks teammates Patrick KaneDuncan KeithBrent Seabrook and Jonathan Toews each appeared in their sixth regular-season outdoor NHL game (all w/ CHI), the most in League history.

 

* Twelve Blackhawks players appeared in their first outdoor NHL game, including goaltender Cam Ward (32 SV), who was playing in his 686th regular-season contest. Eleven Bruins players made their outdoor game debuts. (Numbers do not include backup goaltenders Collin Delia and Jaroslav Halak, who dressed but did not play).

 

* With an assist on Dominik Kahun’s second-period goal, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews (2-5—7 in 6 GP) tied Henrik Zetterberg (0-7—7 in 4 GP) for the most points in outdoor NHL game history. Toews’ five assists in outdoor games rank second only to Zetterberg’s seven.

* The Bruins improved to 2-1-0 in their three outdoor game appearances; Patrice Bergeron (1-1—2) and Zdeno Chara have played in all three games with Boston. The Blackhawks fell to 1-5-0 in their six outdoor contests.

 

NOTRE DAME STADIUM SEES SECOND-HIGHEST NHL CROWD

The sellout crowd of 76,126 for the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic marked the second-largest crowd for an NHL game, behind only the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich. (105,491).

 

The League’s 26 regular-season outdoor games have drawn total attendance of 1,389,739 – an average of 53,452 per game.

 

OUTDOOR GAME NOTES AND TRENDS

* The NHL staged its 26th regular-season outdoor game and 11th Winter Classic. There also have been nine Stadium Series, four Heritage Classics, one Centennial Classic and one NHL100 Classic.

 

* This marked the 15th outdoor game at a football stadium. There also have been 10 hosted by baseball parks and one staged in a soccer stadium.

 

* Road teams improved to 16-8-2 in the League’s 26 regular-season outdoor games. Home clubs fell to 10-13-3.

 

* Teams that score first dropped to 15-8-3 in the NHL’s 26 regular-season outdoor games.

 

NHL PLAYS RARE GAME IN INDIANA . . .

The NHL returned to Indiana for its sixth regular-season game in the state – and first since 1992. The Blackhawks have played in all six such contests, including a 3-2 loss to the Bruins on Jan. 21, 1954, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Coliseum in Indianapolis.
