Draisaitl was named last week's NHL First Star by his solid performance over three games, two of which included the Battle of Alberta. He was a factor in every game, scoring multiple points in each appearance, starting off the week with 2 assists in the Oilers shootout loss to the Calgary Flames. He then posted 2 goals against the St. Louis Blues, one of them being the game-winner. In his third game, the second half of the Battle of Alberta, Draisaitl had a monster night with 4 assists to help the Oilers take revenge in an 8-3 victory. He finished the week with 8 points and took the NHL lead with a total of 83 points (29 goals, 54 assists) in 52 GP. Draisaitl is on an 11-game point streak and the fastest Oilers player to reach 80 points in a season since Mark Messier in 1989-90, who reached 80 points in 50 GP.
Draisaitl's wheels are CCM's Ribcor 80K Hockey Skates, probably the most comfortable skates on the market. Built with FlexFrame Technology and ADPT memory foam ankle pads, the one-piece boot fits unlike any other and provides incredible support and stability.



#2 - STEVEN STAMKOS, C, TBL

While Stamkos matched Draisaitl's 8 point week, he did so through 4 games, which makes him the NHL's Second Star of the week. He reached the 20 goal mark in his game against the Dallas Stars, where he scored both of the Lightning's goals in their 3-2 OT loss. He tallied 3 points (2 goals, 1 assist) versus the Los Angeles Kings, 1 assist against the Anaheim Ducks, and finished the week with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) against the San Jose Sharks in a 3-0 victory. He currently sits at 15th in goals, 20th for assists, and tied for 13th (with Mark Scheifele) in the scoring race at 56 points, trailing teammate Kucherov who sits at 61. Stamkos is looking to extend his 7-game point streak (6 goals, 6 assists) against the Vegas Golden Knights on Feb 4.

Stamkos' weapon of choice during his 2019-20 season is the Bauer Supreme 2S Pro. While it may have a high kick-point, it's designed to load as much energy as possible into every type of shot. It is also built to last too, having been built with special technologies into the shaft and blade to withstand the constant wear and tear from hard-fought games.



#3 - J.T. MILLER, C, VAN

Miller ended the week with 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists) through 4 games and was named the Third Star of the week. In his first game against the Blues, he tallied 2 goals including the game-winner in a 3-1 victory and then dished 2 assists in their 5-2 win against the San Jose Sharks. Miller also reached the 20-goal mark in his game against the New York Islanders, where he scored 1 goal, 1 assist in the 4-3 overtime victory. He capped off the week with one assist in a 4-3 shootout loss against the Carolina Hurricanes. Miller is looking to blow by his career highs, which he set in the 2017-18 campaign, of 23 goals, 35 assists, 58 points. He currently sits at 20 goals, 33 assists, 53 points.
Miller wraps his feet in the CCM Super Tacks AS1 Skates, a medium volume skate with great stability, acceleration, and power.
