The first month of the NHL season was a great one for Jaden Schwartz.
The St. Louis Blues forward, who comes from Wilcox, was named the NHL’s third star of the month.
The 25 year old placed third in the NHL with 17 points (eight goals, nine assists) in 13 games to lift the Blues (10 2 1, 21 points) into first place in the Western Conference. He had at least one point in 11 of his 13 appearances, highlighted by five multi-point efforts and his third career hat trick October 18 vs. Chicago.
The first two stars were Tampa Bay’s Steve Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov
