THREE STAR SELECTIONS FOR THE WEEK ENDING 12-22-12

After an absence of six weeks, über-prospect Vladimir Tarasenko makes his way back onto the "Fab Five" listing this week. Deuces were wild for "T-90" this week as he scored two goals, added two assists, and picked up two penalty minutes in two games played, both wins for SKA St. Petersburg.

This week's Second Star is Moncton LW Yannick Veilleux. The Blues' fourth-round pick (102nd overall) in 2011 scored a power-play goal and tacked on seven minutes in penalty time as the Wildcats won twice to solidify their hold on second place in the QMJHL's Maritime Division.

Offensive-minded defenseman Mark Cundari returns to the "Trending Up" list this week, with three points (1 G, 2 A) in three games this week. Cundari's lone goal this week came on Peoria's only power-play opportunity against Charlotte on Thursday night in the Rivs' wild 5-4 SO victory.

Honorable Mentions this week go to two more Rivermen, winger Jaden Schwartz and goaltender Jake Allen Schwartz picked up assists in both Peoria wins this week, and Allen posted a 2.41 GAA and 90% save percentage during a 4-3 SO win and a 2-1 regulation loss this week.
