It’s the third time Mark has been named one of the NHL’s three stars of the week. Previous honors came back on March 7 of the 2015-16 season and November 14 of the 2016-17 season.

It’s also the fourth time this season a Jet has been handed one of the weekly honors by the NHL.

On October 16, Nikolaj Ehlers was given the league’s first star. Blake Wheeler was named first star back on December 4 and Connor Hellebuyck was named a first star on January 1 and took home second star honors two weeks later on January 22.
