NHL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

Jason Anthony Rocco Spezza was a highly regarded prospect, but took some time to move to the NHL, playing with the Senators AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, in Binghamton, New York. His recent praiseworthy performance was when he helped the Ottawa Senators maintain the best record in the Eastern Conference, on Monday for which he was named the NHL's Offensive Player of the Week. Spezza recorded four goals and four assists as the Senators won all three games to improve to 18-3-0 this season. The 22-year-old Spezza, the second overall pick in the 2001 draft, during the NHL lockout returned to the AHL and with 117 points was the highest scorer in the league by a considerable margin, and the first to record so many points in several years. Currently he is tied with teammate Daniel Alfredsson and Jaromir Jagr of the New York Rangers for the league lead with 39 points.

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mike Morrison fetched Defensive Player of the Week honors after picking up three wins, including two via shootout. He made 21 saves in a 2-1 shootout win over San Jose last Monday, 25 in a 4-3 victory over Minnesota two days later and 27 in a 2-1 shootout victory against Edmonton.
