December 18, 2017 10:07 pm

PHILADELPHIA, PA – The National Hockey League announced today that Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott has been named the Second Star of the Week.

Elliott posted another perfect 3-0-0 week from Dec. 11-17 and recorded a 1.31 goals-against average and .943 save percentage in the process. He allowed just four total goals in wins over Toronto, Buffalo and Dallas stopping 66 of 70 shots he faced, which includes stopping all 27 shots he faced in third periods and one overtime session during the week.

He began the week by stopping 20 of 22 shots against the visiting Maple Leafs and followed that up two days later with 19 saves vs. Buffalo which included no goals in the second and third period to hang onto a 2-1 victory against the Sabres.

He capped the week off by shutting down the high-powered Dallas Stars offense, stopping all 17 shots he faced after the first period, including all four in the overtime for another 2-1 Flyers win.

My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
