Of all the Blackhawks stepping up their offense lately, Viktor Stalberg has been the most noticeable. On Monday, he was honored for his work.
Stalberg was named the NHL's Second Star of the Week for his performances last week. Stalberg earned his first career hat trick against Columbus last Tuesday, then scored a goal against Minnesota on Thursday and against San Jose on Sunday night. Stalberg has 14 goals this season, a new career high. He also has a career-best 28 points so far this season.
The Blackhawks forward, who was part of the successful top line with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on Sunday night, will turn 26 on Tuesday.
