Roman Josi named NHL’s First Star of the Week
Well-deserved for our captain.
The NHL announced Monday afternoon that Roman Josi has been named the NHL’s First Star of the Week.

The Swiss-born defender posted 9 assists over three games last week. To me, this is the most important part of Josi’s hot streak: “He then closed the week with three more helpers in a 6-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs March 19, Josi’s fourth consecutive outing with at least three points – a feat achieved by only one other defenseman in NHL history (Bobby Orr).” Josi is on pace for a 100-point season. Will he get there? If the 31-year old Josi can have a few more weeks like last week, he will certainly get there.
Josi should certainly be nominated for this year’s Norris Trophy, and the campaign #Josi4Norris is already gaining some steam in the Twittersphere.
This season, Josi has 17 goals and 58 assists, good for 75 points over 60 games played.
