NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 3

Total Pro Sports – In what will become a weekly event just like the Power Rankings, we’ll be taking a look at the top 3 performers from the week. Not only were these players big fantasy hockey performers, they helped their own team win on the ice.

Lets take a look at the NHL 3 Stars for Week 3.

3rd Star – Marian Hossa, Detroit Red Wings

If you own Marian Hossa in your fantasy hockey league you breathed a sy of relief last week. After getting off to a slow start Hossa managed 6 points in Detroit’s 3 games. Three of those points came against his former…former team the Thrashers scoring 2 goals and adding 1 assist. Seems like he’s starting to get used to playing with his new teammates and things should only go up from here.

2nd Star – Miikka Kiprusoff, Calgary Flames

If you’re a fantasy hockey owner that managed to buy low and get Kiprusoff via trade then you were laughing last week. Kipper won all 3 of his games while posting a 1.67 GAA and making 88 saves for a .946 SAV%. Hopefully this is a sign that the Veznia winning version of Kiprusoff is back. Only time will tell.

1st Star – Jarome Iginla, Calgary Flames

What better way to top off the week for the Flames than by having Jarome Iginla as the league’s best player for Week 3 of the 2008-09 NHL season with 7 points in 3 games. As I’m sure you’ve seen in the Week 3 Power Rankings the Flames had a big week and Iggy was a big reason why. Iginla scored a hat-trick against the Predators and followed that up with another 3 point night (1 goal & 2 assists) against the Coyotes.

Remember to check back in next week to see who the NHL 3 Stars will be for Week 4.
