Okposo Named NHL\'s 2nd Star of the Week
Isles forward scored seven points in three games.

The National Hockey League announced today that New York Islanders forward Kyle Okposo has been named the league’s Second Star of the Week, for the period ending March 16.

Okposo, 25, recorded multi-point efforts in each of the Islanders’ three games last week, totaling seven points (one goal, six assists). That stretch marked the fourth time this season that Okposo has recorded multiple points in at least three straight games; he is the only player in the NHL to accomplish that feat this season.

Okposo opened the week with a three-assist effort in the third period of the Islanders’ 7-4 comeback win over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday, Mar. 10. The St. Paul, MN, native added two more assists in a 4-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Friday, Mar. 14, then scored a goal and an assist Saturday, Mar. 15 in the Islanders’ 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

In 68 games this season, Okposo has posted career highs in goals (27), assists (42) and points (69). Okposo leads the Islanders in all three categories and is tied for fourth overall in the NHL scoring race. Okposo has 21 multi-point games this season, which ranks third behind Sidney Crosby (26) and Phil Kessel (23) on the NHL leader board.

The Islanders selected Okposo in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2006 NHL Draft. He’s scored 254 career points (99 goals, 155 assists) in 387 career games with the Islanders and added four points (three goals, one assist) in six Stanley Cup Playoff games.
