Roloson Named NHL\'s First Star
The National Hockey League announced today that Islanders goaltender Dwayne Roloson has been named the First Star of the Week for the period ending on Sunday, Dec. 26.

Roloson won three-straight games over the course and allowed just one goal in each, stopping 106-of-109 shots (97.2%). He opened the week with a 34-save effort to hold-off the high-scoring Tampa Bay Lightning in the Islanders’ 2-1 overtime victory on Dec. 22. Roloson stymied the New Jersey Devils the following night in Newark with another 34-save performance in the Islanders’ 5-1 victory.  The 41 year-old net-minder finished his week by turning aside a season-high 38-saves against the Montreal Canadiens on Dec. 26 to backstop the Islanders to a 4-1 home win.

Roloson has a 5-12-1 record this season, despite ranking 13th among the NHL’s goals against leaders (2.38) and tied for 13th among the league’s save percentage leaders (.920). The Simcoe, ON, native has allowed two goals or fewer in 10 of his 18 starts this season. Roloson is just the 11th goaltender in NHL history to play a game after his 41st birthday.
