Last week saw different Nashville Predators stand out in each game, leaving about 10 guys capable of being considered for our weekly honor. When one Pred gets a hat trick, however, that tips the scales in his favor, so Sergei Kostitsyn is your latest OTF Hero Of The Week.

#74 / Left Wing / Nashville Predators
Mar 20, 1987
Sunday's game against Calgary was a New Year's party for Nashville Predators fans, and SK74's hat trick was a highlight of the season, even if the last goal was an empty-net tap-in that anybody outside of Craig Smith could have scored (it'll take a while for the rookie to live that one down).
While pretty much most of the team laid an egg Thursday against Dallas, Kostitsyn also made a nice play to help set up Shea Weber's opening goal last night against Carolina, tying him for the team lead with 4 points on the week, along with Patric Hornqvist (2 goals & 2 assists) and Mike Fisher (4 assists).
So congrats, Sergei, now let's just see you build on this success and shoot the puck a whole lot more!
