Tyler Seguin NHL's First Star Of The Week

Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin was named the NHL's first star of the week. In Boston's three games this past week, Seguin contributed four goals, two assists and a plus-four rating.

"It's pretty cool," Seguin said of the honor. "Obviously it's never happened to me before and I'm feeling pretty good about it. I've got the boys all over me. Everyone is making sure that I know Star of the Week doesn't make your career." 

Seguin, who now has a seven-game point streak, led the Bruins to three consecutive wins during the week, boosting the team's win streak to five consecutive games. 

"It's great. It's deserving," said Bruins coach Claude Julien. "He's had a tremendous start to the season and even now I see him getting better and better, which is even more encouraging. His confidence is growing. 

"Right now he's feeling really good about himself and he's starting to showcase what he's all about," added Julien. "Instinctively, he's making the right decisions and he's going about his business," Julien said. "But he's also playing the game at both ends of the ice and he's a real good player for us."
