FIRST STAR – LEON DRAISAITL, C, EDMONTON OILERSDraisaitl paced the NHL in goals (15), points (27), power-play goals (8), power-play points (11) and game-winning goals (4) across 13 appearances to propel the Oilers (15-5-0, 30 points) to a 9-4-0 November. Draisaitl found the scoresheet in 10 of his 13 outings, highlighted by nine multi-point performances. Six of those featured at least three points, including a run of three straight games to open the month (Nov. 1-5: 5-5-10) as well as a four-point effort Nov. 24 at ARI (2-2-4). The latter gave Draisaitl 20-20-40 in 2021-22, making him the seventh different player in League history – and first since Mario Lemieux in 1995-96 (w/ PIT) – to record at least 20 goals and 20 assists within his first 20 games of a season.

He also ranks among the League leaders in power-play points (2nd; 16), assists (t-2nd; 20), shooting percentage (4th; 28.6%) and plus/minus (t 9th; +14). SECOND STAR – JACK CAMPBELL, G, TORONTO MAPLE LEAFSCampbell went 9-2-0 in 11 appearances, leading all goaltenders (minimum: 6 GP) in wins (9), goals-against average (1.27), save percentage (.959) and shutouts (t-3) to help the Maple Leafs (16-6-1, 33 points) complete a 12-2-0 November (24 points) – their most wins and points in a calendar month in franchise history. Campbell yielded two or fewer goals in 10 of his 11 starts, highlighted by shutouts Nov. 2 vs. VGK (26 SV), Nov. 10 at PHI (36 SV) and Nov. 16 vs. NSH (24 SV) – his 100th NHL appearance. He also posted 30 or more saves in five of his outings, including a season-high 42 stops Nov. 6 vs. BOS (5-2 W). The 29-year-old Port Huron, Mich., native has played in 18 total games this season, pacing netminders (minimum: 6 GP) in wins (t-12), goals-against average (1.64) and save percentage (.946). His three shutouts in 2021-22, which already are a career high, also are tied for second place in the League – behind only Calgary’s Jacob Markstrom (5). THIRD STAR – NAZEM KADRI, C, COLORADO AVALANCHEKadri topped the NHL with 2.10 points per game (4-17-21 in 10 GP), leading all players in assists (17) while ranking second in power-play assists (t-7) and third in both overall points (21) and power-play points (9) to guide the Avalanche (11-6-1, 23 points) to a 7-2-1 November. Kadri collected points in all but one of his 10 appearances to become the first Colorado player to average 2.00 points per game in a calendar month (minimum: 5 GP) since Joe Sakic in March 2000 (15-11-26 in 13 GP). Kadri, who registered seven multi-point performances as well as four outings with at least three points, also posted four straight games with multiple assists (Nov. 13-22: 3-9-12) – the longest such run by an Avalanche player since Peter Forsberg from Feb. 17-23, 2001 (5-9-14 in 4 GP).
