Adam Fox is the NHL’s First Star of the Week

The NHL has announced that Adam Fox is the First Star of the Week.

From the NHL:

Fox collected a League-leading 10 assists and 11 points in four games (1-10—11) to propel the Rangers (15-15-4, 34 points) to a 2-2-0 week. He recorded 1-2—3, his second career three-point outing (also Jan. 2, 2020 at CGY: 0-3—3), in a 5-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres March 22. Fox then notched a career-high five assists, the eighth such performance in Rangers history and first since since Feb. 15, 1999 (Wayne Gretzky: 0-5—5 at NSH), in a 8-3 triumph against the Philadelphia Flyers March 25. Fox added three more helpers over his next two contests, assisting on New York’s lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Flyers March 27 and picking up two helpers in a 5-4 defeat against Washington Capitals March 28. The 23-year-old Jericho, N.Y., native – who finished fourth in Calder Memorial Trophy voting in 2019-20 (8-34—42 in 70 GP) – ranks third among defensemen with 3-26—29 through 33 appearances this season, highlighted by an active seven-game point streak dating to March 17 (1-13—14). Fox, who topped the NHL with seven power-play assists/points last week, also places among the overall leaders in both power-play assists (4th; 15) and power-play points (7th; 17) in 2020-21.
