NHL names David Pastrnak among the Stars of the Month for February originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Boston Bruins right winger David Pastrnak made his season debut on January 30 and has been one of the NHL's most productive players.

His hot start to the 2020-21 season was recognized Tuesday when the league revealed that Pastrnak was among the four Stars of the Month for February.

Eichel rumors are fun, but what would the cost be for Bruins?

Here's a list of the Stars of the Month from each division, including the frontline heroes the league also is honoring.

  • East Division: David Pastrnak, Boston Bruins; Cathy Draine, State Police Association of Massachusetts

  • West Division: Logan Couture, San Jose Sharks; Martha Godinez, Medical Assistant

  • North Division: Auston Matthews, Toronto Maple Leafs; Natasha Salt, Sunnybrook Hospital

  • Central Division: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks; Qudus Rabiu, Rush University Medical Center

Pastrnak tallied 17 points in 11 games during February, and his nine goals were the second-most in the league over that span. He recorded at least one point in eight of those 11 games. Pastrnak also had two hat tricks, one of which came in Boston's 7-3 win over Philadelphia Flyers in the outdoor game at Lake Tahoe on Feb. 21.

Overall, Pastrnak has 18 points (nine goals, nine assists) in 12 games. He's on pace to score above a point-per-game rate for the third consecutive season.

The Bruins are two points behind the Washington Capitals for first place in the East Division. The B's and Capitals will play Wednesday and Friday at TD Garden.
