Cam Ward, Henrik Sedin and Rick Nash named NHL three stars of the month

NEW YORK - Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Cam Ward, Vancouver Canucks centre Henrik Sedin and Columbus Blue Jackets left-winger Rick Nash were named NHL three stars of the month Wednesday.

Ward was named first star after backstopping the Hurricanes to a 10-1-2 record last month. He had a 1.98 goals-against average and .938 save percentage in 13 starts.

Sedin recorded 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) and had a plus-9 rating in 15 games to help the Canucks go 11-3-1 and move into the Northwest Division lead.

Sedin has recorded multiple points in five of his last 10 games. He already has set a single-season career high in goals (19) and is five points shy of his career-best point total of 81 set in 2006-07.

Nash had 17 points (10-7) and a plus-7 rating in 15 games to lead the Blue Jackets to a 9-4-2 mark. He picked up points in 10 of 15 games and recorded his fourth career hat trick at Detroit on March 7.
