NEW YORK, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson, who set a franchise record with seven points in a game, was selected the top NHL player of the week, the league said Monday.
Alfredsson had three goals and four assists in the Senators' 8-4 victory Thursday over Tampa Bay. That effort, the first seven-point NHL game in five years, gave Alfredsson an NHL-leading 67 points on the season.
Ovechkin had six points -- three goals and three assists -- over three games for Washington. He had 39 goals this season, which leads the NHL. The Capitols, overcoming a slow start, used two wins in those three games to pulls within 1 point of division-leading Carolina.
Leclaire won both his games last week, posting a 1.00 goals-against average and a .968 save percentage. He capped the week with his league-leading eighth shutout of the season in a 1-0 win at Chicago.
