TORONTO - Another week, another NHL honour for Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry.

Perry was named the league's first star Monday for the week after leading all NHL scorers with eight points (three goals, five assists) in four games. Earlier, he was named the first star for the month of March and also garnered second- and third-team weekly honours.

Perry has scored a league-high 47 goals, ranks second in game-winning tallies (10) and third in points (93). He has a nine-game points streak, having accumulated 11 goals and seven assists over that span.

Calgary Flames forward Jarome Iginla captured second star honours. He had six points (three goals, three assists) in three games and recorded his 1,000th career point in a 3-2 win over St. Louis on Friday night. He became just the 77th player in NHL history to achieve the milestone.

Iginla is sixth among NHL scorers with 81 points (39 goals, 42 assists) and has recorded at least 30 goals in each of the past 10 seasons.

Buffalo Sabres rookie goalie Jhonas Enroth was named the third star. He posted a 2-0-1 record, 1.94 goals-against average, .936 save percentage and one shutout in three appearances. Overall, he has a 7-2-2 record with a 2.53 GAA and .915 save percentage.
