NEW YORK, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Henrik Zetterberg, who scored at least one point in each of Detroit's first 13 games of the season, led the way among three NHL players of the month.

Zetterberg took "first star" honors, with Columbus goaltender Pascal Leclaire and Calgary's Jarome Iginla also being selected by the NHL in Thursday's announcement.

Zetterberg leads the NHL with 10 goals and 12 assists. He had seven multi-point games in October, including three-point nights against Chicago on Oct. 6 and Los Angeles on Oct. 14. Going back to late season, Zetterberg has at least one point in 19 consecutive regular-season games.

Leclaire was 6-2-0 with a 1.25 goals against average on the month. His four shutouts in October led the NHL and he allowed one goal in two other games. Leclaire is one shutout short of tying the team record for shutouts in a season.

Iginla is second in the NHL in scoring. He has 19 points, including eight goals. He scored points in nine of Calgary's 12 games, including getting three points three times.
