Kevin Fiala led the League with 9 points (4 goals, 5 assists) in 4 games to help the Wild win 3 of them and move within one point of a playoff spot. He recorded multiple points in each game he played, scoring 1 goal and 1 assist against the Blue Jackets (twice) and the Washington Capitals. He then tallied 1 goal and 2 assists versus the Red Wings in their 7-1 victory. His four-game multi-point performance made him the third Minnesota Wild player in club history to do so and the 19th player in the 2019-20 season. Fiala leads the Wild with 49 points (20 goals, 29 assists) and broke his career-high of 48 points he set with the Nashville Predators.
Fiala rocks a ton of Bauer Supreme and sports one of the most comfortable gloves on the market, the Supreme 2S Pro. To only add more appeal to Bauer's contoured fitting glove is the elite level protection. It consists of some of the best smart foams on the market to really protect against high-speed hockey-related impacts.


#2 - RYAN ELLIS, D, NSH

Boasting 7 points, which was only two short of being a factor in every goal Nashville scored last week, Ellis led all defensemen and tied for second within the NHL. He played three games and started off with 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) against the Ottawa Senators. He then dished 3 assists against the Calgary Flames before ending the week with 2 assists in the Predator's loss to the Colorado Avalanche. His performance helped the Preds step into a playoff spot, the first time since Nov 13. Ellis is on his way to breaking his career-high of 36 points.

Sporting some older protective equipment, Ellis instead opts for the latest Super Tacks AS2 Pro stick. Not only does it produce blistering shot power but it excels in shooting accuracy too.


#3 - PAVEL FRANCOUZ, G, COL

Francouz is back again this week but as the NHL's Third Star. He went 3-0-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .946 SV% to help the Avalanche maintain their second place in the Central Division. We won all three games 3-2, beginning with the Buffalo Sabres. He followed that win with a career-high of 45 saves against the Carolina Hurricanes before finishing off the Predators with a 30 save performance. His win streak was extended to six games and his point streak to seven. This makes him the first Av's goalie with the longest win streak since Jonathon Bernier in 2017-18, who topped it at 9 wins. Francouz now owns a 19-5-3 record, 2.24 GAA, .929 SV%, and 1 SO over 29 games this season.
