San Jose Sharks winger Ryane Clowe was also named the rookie of the month on Tuesday.

The Senators went 9-3-1 and improved to second place in the Northeast Division. Heatley had seven multiple-point games, including a four-point night in a win over Buffalo on Jan. 3.

Crosby was named the second star after scoring 21 points (eight goals, 13 assists) in 12 games. The league's top point-getter had at least one point in all but one game last month.

Luongo was given the third star after posting an 8-1-2 record with a 1.86 goals-against average and .945 save percentage.

Clowe was named the league's top rookie in January after putting up 16 points (nine goals, seven assists) and a plus-10 rating in 11 games.

The native of Fermeuse, N.L., edged Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin, Colorado's Paul Stastny and Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings.
