On Monday, we celebrated Corey Crawford's "Star of the Week" honor with a Twitter contest. We asked the Twitterverse to submit new hashtag ideas for our netminder, as the #Crawsome hashtag was now two years old. Here were some of our favorite submissions!

1st Star: C Phillip Danault, Moncton (QMJHL)
The Line: 4GP, 7A, +6

Four games in five days? No sweat for the Wildcats, as they blazed through their tough schedule to extend their win streak to eight games and counting. Danault continued on his recent tear, racking up seven helpers in those four games, three of them coming on Jan. 25 at Acadie-Bathurst. The 2011 draft pick has now amassed 15 points in his first eight games with Moncton, which now ranks second in the Maritime Division and fifth overall in the QMJHL.

Each week, the Blackhawks Blog will give you five stats you need to know about the Blackhawks this season.

1. Patrick Kane opened the season with a four-game point streak for the second consecutive year.

Kane’s team-leading seven points (2G, 5A) in four games ties his longest season-opening streak, a four-game run to kick off the 2011-12 campaign (2G, 4A). Kane sits tied for third in league point scoring.

1st Star: C Phillip Danault, Moncton (QMJHL)
The Line: 3GP, 3G, 4A, +6 plus/minus

Danault’s first full week of action with Moncton proved fruitful indeed, as the Wildcats outscored their opponents 20-4 en route to winning all three games on the slate. Danault himself tallied a goal in each contest and added four helpers, including a four-point night (1G, 3A) on Jan. 16 vs. Saint John. The two-way center also helped his team in the puck possession game, winning 58.5 percent of his draws last week (31-for-53).

Blackhawks owners Arthur Wirtz and Jim Norris honored Glenn Hall's feat of starting 503 games in goal, all without a mask, surprising him before a game at the Stadium against the Montreal Canadiens on January 17, 1962, by driving a new 1962 Chevrolet on the ice.

1st Star: LW Brandon Saad, Rockford (AHL)
The Line: 3GP, 2G, 4A, +2 plus/minus

The IceHogs won two of three last week, and Saad played a big part in both victories, netting a single-game high of four points (1G, 3A) against Grand Rapids, a total that ties the franchise rookie single-game record set by Jack Skille in the 2007-08 season. The next night, in Milwaukee, Saad tallied a goal and an assist, scoring the overtime game-winner, and his hot streak earned him CCM/AHL Player of the Week honors.

Each week, the Blackhawks Blog takes you around the AHL, ECHL, NCAA and junior hockey ranks to award three Hawks prospects the chicagoblackhawks.com Three Stars of the Week.

1st Star: G Mac Carruth / Portland (WHL)
The Line: 2 Games Played, 4 Goals Allowed, 55 Saves, 2-0-0 Record

With the European leagues on break and fewer games for many of the Blackhawks' prospects, there weren't many standout offensive performances this past week, but on the other side of the ice, goaltender Mac Carruth had another strong week of work for Portland, earning his 14th and 15th wins of the year. Carruth and the Winterhawks yielded just two goals apiece in weekend wins against Seattle and Everett with the 2010 draft pick backstopping each of the victories. Carruth's 1.73 goals-against average on the year ranks second in the WHL, and his .938 save percentage leads the league.

Each week, the Blackhawks Blog takes you around the AHL, ECHL, NCAA and junior hockey ranks to award three Hawks prospects the chicagoblackhawks.com Three Stars of the Week.

1st Star: C Phillip Danault / Victoriaville (QMJHL)
The Line: 2 Games, 1 Goal, 7 Assists, +3 Plus/Minus

Team Canada opens its annual evaluation camp for its 2013 World Junior Championship team on Tuesday, and Danault, who will attend with fellow Blackhawks prospect Mark McNeill, enters the week-long gathering with a full head of steam. The Tigres went 2-0-0 this past week, outscoring opponents 11-4, and Danault registered a point on eight of those goals. The astounding week rocketed Danault up the QMJHL's top scorer list, where he now ranks 14th in the league overall with 44 points, and second overall in assists (30).

Each week, the Blackhawks Blog takes you around the AHL, ECHL, NCAA and junior hockey ranks to award three Hawks prospects the chicagoblackhawks.com Three Stars of the Week.

1st Star: G Carter Hutton / Rockford (AHL)
The Line: 3 Games Played, 5 Goals Allowed, 99 Saves, 3-0-0 Record

A daunting road schedule was kind to the IceHogs this week - three away games in five days all resulted in wins for the Blackhawks' top minor league affiliate. Hutton got the starting nod in all three contests and performed like the top netminder he has become, racking up three victories while allowing just five total goals. Rockford enters Monday atop the AHL's Midwest Division and Hutton's stability in net is a big reason why they've climbed to the top.
