San Jose Sharks goaltender Antti Niemi, New Jersey Devils netminder Johan Hedberg and Edmonton Oilers right winger Ales Hemsky have been named the NHL's 'Three Stars' for the week ending Feb. 20.

Niemi was named First Star for posting a 3-0-0 record with a stingy 0.98 goals-against average and .963 save percentage as the Sharks climbed to fourth place in the cluttered Western Conference. The 27-year-old Finn has started each of San Jose's past 15 games, going 11-2-1 in that span.
