Jets’ Hellebuyck earns 3rd star of the month honours from NHL

Connor Hellebuyck’s work guiding the Jets to the NHL’s best record in December has earned the Winnipeg goaltender a monthly honour from the National Hockey League.

The Jets’ starting goalie was named the league’s third star of the month after a December that saw him achieve a 7-0-2 record between the pipes and a .934 save percentage with 1.88 goals-against average.

That month, the Jets went on a 10-1-2 tear overall.
