Henrique named NHL\'s Second Star of the Week

Adam Henrique has been named the NHL's Second Star for the week ending March 2.

Henrique recorded three straight multi-point games, sharing the League lead in goals (4), points (6) and power-play goals (2) to power the Devils (26-23-13, 65 points) to two wins in three contests. He tallied two goals – including his ninth career game-winner and eighth career shorthanded marker – for his first multi-goal performance since March 13, 2013, in a 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Feb. 27.

Henrique then collected 1g-1a in each of the next two games: a 6-1 triumph over the Islanders on March 1 and a 4-2 loss to San Jose Sharks on March 2.

The 24-year-old Brantford, Ont., native ranks third on the Devils with 18‑15—33 in 62 games this season, including a team-leading seven power-play goals and two shorthanded tallies.

Detroit Red Wings right wing Johan Franzen and Minnesota Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper were named First and Third Star, respectively.
