Patrick Sharp became the first member of the 2013-14 Blackhawks to be named among the NHL's 'Three Stars' of the week. 

Sharp was named the league's No. 3 star on Monday for the week ending Nov. 10, following Ottawa goaltender Robin Lehner and Anaheim goaltender Frederik Andersen, respectively. 

In the last five days, Sharp's recorded one goal and six assists to lead the league with seven points in three games. The Blackhawks' point streak has since been extended to seven games.

Sharp began the week by tallying a goal and an assist against the Winnipeg Jets before going on to record his second career four-assist game that came against the Dallas Stars. Despite facing a quick back-to-back turnaround, Sharp's point streak continued as he assisted Duncan Keith's game-winning goal in Sunday night's win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Lehner topped the list after posting a 3-0-0 record with a 1.33 goals-against average and .958 save percentage to help extend Ottawa's season-long point streak to five games. Lehner has now tied his longest winning streak of his four-year NHL career.

Andersen posted an identical record to Lehner's, stopping 92 of 96 shots to help the Ducks achieve their best start through 19 games in franchise history. He has now become the first goaltender since Toronto's Damian Rhodes to post victories in each of his first six NHL appearances. 

Andersen has totaled a 1.41 goals-against average and .952 save percentage since making his NHL debut on Oct. 20.
