To begin with, if the Canadiens had a player of the caliber of Connor McDavid, we wouldn't be reporting this news because he accumulates such recognitions.

However, that's not the case, so it's very noteworthy. Nick Suzuki was named the best forward in the NHL during the past week, earning the third star.

"MONTREAL – The NHL announced Monday that forward Nick Suzuki was named the League's Third Star of the Week for the seven-day stretch ending on Feb. 11.

Jacob Markstrom and Sergei Bobrovsky were named the NHL's First and Second Stars of the Week, respectively.


The 24-year-old has been productive on all fronts, collecting four goals and two assists in three games.

In his first game back from the 2024 NHL All-Star Weekend, the centerman found the back of the net on two occasions and added a helper to lead the Canadiens past the Capitals. He was named the first star of the game.

With the Dallas Stars in town on Saturday afternoon, Suzuki got on the scoresheet twice (1G, 1A). His performance earned him the second star of the game.

Finally, on Sunday, the captain tallied Montreal's first goal of the contest against the St. Louis Blues and extended his point streak to seven consecutive games.

Suzuki and his teammates will be back in action on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. ET against the Anaheim Ducks at the Bell Centre." - Montreal Canadiens

As mentioned, the Canadiens' captain was only surpassed by two goalies, making him the best forward of the week.

It's very rare for a Canadiens player to be among the three stars of the week, especially when it doesn't involve a goaltender. Congratulations, Nick!
