Calgary Flames forward Blake Coleman named NHL’s second star of the week
1 month ago
On Monday the Texas Tiger himself, Blake Coleman, was honoured as the NHL’s second star of the week. In 3 games played Coleman tallied 4 goals and 3 assists for 7 points. One such goal was the game winner in a tight match late against the Ottawa Senators.
Blake Coleman is on pace to crush all of his career totals this year. His previous career high in points was 38 achieved last season (2022-23) in a span of 82 games. His goal high was in 2018-19 where he scored 22 for the New Jersey Devils. Already through 43 games this season Coleman has 19 goals and 18 assists for 37 points.
The 82 game pace? 36 goals, 34 assists, 70 points. A major factor in Calgary’s recent success.
Here is the league’s release on Coleman’s performance:
Coleman collected multiple points in all three games, including an active three-game goal and multi-point streaks, to rank second in the NHL with 4-3—7 and lead the Flames (20-18-5, 45 points) to a perfect 3-0-0 week. He started the week by scoring twice in Calgary’s 6-3 come-from-behind victory against the Ottawa Senators Jan. 9, notching the go-ahead game-winning goal in the final 12 minutes of the third period. On Jan. 11, he tallied 1-2—3 – all in the first period, matching a career high for points in one frame – to spur the Flames to a 6-2 triumph against the Arizona Coyotes, one of the clubs against whom they are battling with in the Western Conference playoff race. He closed the week by matching a career high (for the second time this season) by extending his goal streak to three games and notching three straight multi-point games for the first time, collecting 1-1—2 in a 3-1 victory against the reigning Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights Jan. 13. The 32-year-old Coleman paces Calgary in goals and points this season (19-18—37 in 43 GP) and sits one shy of his third career 20-goal campaign.
Catch the Texas Tiger back in action Tuesday at 7 p.m. MT against the Arizona Coyotes.
