Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews, Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid and Detroit Red Wings right wing Alex DeBrincat were named the three NHL stars of the week.
Matthews was named the most valuable player of the NHL’s All-Star Tournament in Toronto on Saturday after scoring two goals and providing two assists in two games to lead his team to victory in the four-team tournament.

The Oilers center is fifth in the league standings with 67 points (20 goals, 47 assists) as Edmonton looks to tie the NHL record with its 17th straight win in Vegas on Tuesday.
