The 22-year-old product of Columbus, OH. put up five goals, six points and a hat trick last week. His six points was a league-high, while his hat trick was the first of his NHL career. Roslovic’s three goals came against the lowly Anaheim Ducks, as a part of his team’s 9-3 victory. All three goals came on the power play, while the speedy winger also picked up an assist in that game.
Prior to his four-point performance, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound forward also picked up goals in back-to-back games for Winnipeg, registering one goal against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday, before tallying again for the Jets against the Columbus Blue Jackets Thursday.
Roslovic’s six-point week added to his regular season totals, bringing the second-year pro up to seven goals and 16 points in 52 games in 2018-19. The former United States National Development Team member now has 12 goals and 30 points in 84 career NHL games, to go along with three postseason assists in 10 games.
With the First Star of the Week selection, Roslovic joined Mark Scheifele (three times), Patrik Laine and Blake Wheeler as the only Jets to have their name chosen in the NHL’s weekly honours. Following their overtime loss to San Jose Tuesday, Winnipeg will travel to Montreal for a Thursday evening matchup against the Canadiens, before taking on the Ottawa Senators in the Nation’s capital on Saturday afternoon. Puck drop on Thursday is set for 6:30 P.M. central, and the game will be available to watch on TSN3.
