NEW YORK – Florida Panthers left-wing Jonathan Huberdeau, Dallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop and Anaheim Ducks right-wing Troy Terry are the NHL’s three stars of the week.

Huberdeau led the NHL with nine points (four goals, five assists) in four games to power the Panthers to a 2-1-1 week and within seven points of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Bishop stopped all 59 shots he faced over two appearances to help the Stars earn two wins and maintain the first wild-card position in the Western Conference. Bishop registered consecutive shutouts for the first time in his career after Dallas posted a 1-0 triumph over the New York Rangers on Tuesday and a 4-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.

Terry had two goals and five assists in four games.
