Leon Draisaitl, who play four games, topped all skaters with a total of 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists). Three of those games were multi-point performances, which helped the Oilers slip into first place in the Pacific Division. He started the week with a heavy performance of 4 points (1 goal, 3 assists) in the Oilers win over the Chicago Blackhawks. He posted 1 assist against the Tampa Bay Lightning, 1 goal 1 assist against the Florida Panthers before ending the week with 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) versus the Carolina Hurricanes. The best German hockey player to play the game is now 13 points ahead of the competition for the Art Ross Trophy, scoring 95 points (34 goals, 61 assists) in only 59 games. He is the fastest player to reach 95 points in a season since Sidney Crosby during the 2006-07 campaign.
Draisaitl snipes and dishes with the Warrior Alpha DX SL, a limited edition version of the Alpha DX. It utilizes a low-kick point with a unique Sabre Taper that helps bridge the gap between a mid-kick stick, making this one of the most versatile sticks Warrior has ever designed.


#2 ANDREI VASILEVSKIY, G, TBL

Vasilevskiy, who was last weeks third star, has taken the second spot for the week ending Feb 16. He finished the week by winning all three games, landing him a 1.64 GAA and .949 SV%. This gave the Lightning 6 valuable points and extended their winning streak to 10 games. He secured the 2-1 overtime win against the Pittsburgh Penguins and beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-1. He then finished the week by defeating the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3, which improved his record to 19-0-2 in his last 21 appearances. He's looking to claim back-to-back Vezina Trophies and make that deep playoff run for the Stanley Cup Final.
Representing Bauer Hockey, Andrei Vasilevskiy chooses the Vapor Line for his butterfly style goaltending. The 2X Pro gear features Curv Composite to add rigidity and stability to the equipment so goaltenders have reliable rebounds and time to react after the save.


#3 - TYLER TOFFOLI, RW, LAK

Squeeking into third place is Los Angeles Kings forward, Tyler Toffoli, who potted four goals in two games. In scored one goal in the first game against the Calgary Flames, which was in a 5-3 victory. He made history when he faced the Colorado Avalanche in the 2020 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series on Feb 15, by becoming the first player to score a hat trick in a regular season outdoor game. He now sits at 34 points (18 goals, 16 assists) and leads all King skaters in goals.
Toffoli wears Warrior's Covert QR Edge Gloves, which boast the AxyFlex floating cuff. This cuff design is one of the best on the market at actually staying close the wrist so that players can obtain full wrist mobility for shooting and stickhandling while keeping protection right where it needs to be. Internally, it features Warrior's WarTech FnC Liner, a premium liner that is soft to the touch yet handles moisture and battles odor-causing bacteria.
