Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has been named the NHL's first star of the week for his role in the Blue Jackets' recent surge.

Bobrovsky posted a league-high four victories last week as the Blue Jackets extended their winning streak to five games. He had a 0.77-against average, a .972 save percentage and a shutout over that span.

Bobrovsky has gone 6-1-1 in his last eight games, improving his record to 8-6-3 with a 2.27 goals-against average and .919 save percentage in 17 appearances this season
