STARS TURCO NAMED NHL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK;
BLUE JACKETS' VYBORNY NAMED TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER

NEW YORK/TORONTO (January 30, 2006) -- Columbus Blue Jackets forward David Vyborny, who tallied seven points (two goals, five assists) in three games, has been named the NHL's Offensive Player of the Week for the period ending Sunday, January 29. Dallas Stars goaltender Marty Turco, who led the Stars to four victories, three by shootout, with a 1.65 goals against average and .933 save percentage, is the League's Defensive Player of the Week.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Mark Recchi, who posted eight points (4-4--8 in four games), Anaheim Mighty Ducks forward Teemu Selanne (2-5--7 in four games) and Carolina Hurricanes forward Justin Williams (2-5--7 in four games) were runners-up for offensive honors, while goaltenders Ilya Bryzgalov of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks (2-0-0, 1.00 GAA, one shutout) and Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers (2-0-0, 1.60 GAA, one shutout in three games) were runners-up for the defensive award.

Vyborny recorded points in each game as the Blue Jackets went 3-0-0 for the week. He recorded three assists in a 6-5 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Jan. 24, posted two assists in a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild Jan. 27 and notched two goals, including the game-winner late in the third period, in a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators Jan. 28.

Vyborny has collected 16 points (eight goals, eight assists) in his past 11 games, leading Columbus to an 8-3-0 record in that span. He leads the club in goals, assists and points with 15-23--38 in 50 games and will represent the Czech Republic at next month's Olympic Games in Turin, Italy.

Turco, who will represent Canada at the Turin Games, began the week by making 17 saves as the Stars defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1 on Jan. 23. He went on to post three consecutive shootout victories, against the St. Louis Blues (4-3, Jan. 25), Colorado Avalanche (3-2, Jan. 26) and Detroit Red Wings (2-1, Jan. 28), stopping six of nine shootout attempts. Turco has won each of his six shootout decisions this season; the Stars are 8-0 overall.

Appearing in 43 of Dallas' 51 games this season, Turco has posted a 26-13-2 record, a 2.52 goals-against average and .898 save percentage. The Stars (34-15-2, 70 points) lead the Pacific Division and are fourth in the overall NHL standings. They host San Jose tonight and Nashville Wednesday before playing at St. Louis Saturday (2 p.m., ET, NBC).
