Theodore Named NHL Third Star Of The Week

The National Hockey League announced today that Wild goalie Jose Theodore has been named the league's Third Star of the Week. In four games last week, Theo went 3-1-0 with a 1.50 GAA and a .946 SV%, including a 26-save performance to earn his 30th career NHL shutout in Pittsburgh.

Jose has started five straight games for the Wild, earning a 4-1-0 mark. His stellar performance on Minnesota's most recent road trip helped the Wild go 3-0-0 on the East Coast, including two straight victories against division leaders.

After signing with the Wild as a free agent on Oct. 2, the 34-year-old native of Laval, Quebec, has posted a record of 8-6-2 with a 2.56 GAA and a .917 SV% with one shutout in 17 games.

Theodore's selection marks the first time a Wild player has been named a NHL Star of the Week this season. Guillaume Latendresse was the last Wild player to earn the honor, with a third star selection on Jan. 18, 2010.

Vancouver Canucks left wing Daniel Sedin was named the first star after leading the NHL with seven points (5-2=7), helping the Canucks post a 3-0-1 record and claim first place in the NHL standings. Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller was named the second star after recording a 2-1-0 record with a 0.67 GAA, a .977 SV%, and two shutouts.
