NHL Team Of The Month: December 2007

I almost lost track of this in all the Winter Classic excitement, but here we are with the Team of the Month for December:

  • Center: Jason Spezza (14 GP, 10 G, 15 A, +14, 7 PPP, 2 GWG)
  • Right Wing: Jarome Iginla (14 GP, 14 G, 5 A, +10, 7 PPG, 3 GWG)
  • Left Wing: Alexander Ovechkin (13 GP, 11 G, 7 A, 4 PPP, 3 GWG)
  • Defense: Nicklas Lidstrom (15 GP, 13 P, +15, 5 PPP)
  • Defense: Sergei Zubov (14 GP, 12 P, +8, 6 PPP)
  • Goalie: Evgeni Nabokov (15 GP, 10 W, 1.96 GAA, .925 SV%, 2 SO)
  • Spezza quietly had an insane month for the Sens.
  • Iginla and Ovechkin were both beasts in December. Iginla led Calgary's charge up the Western Conference standings while rumors are already starting to swirl about AO trying to get out of Washington this offseason.
  • Lidstrom and Zubov are as steady as they come. You couldn't ask for more from a defender.
  • Nabokov has been the one constant for the Sharks this season (he's started every game for San Jose) and is having an MVP-type year. As long as he doesn't wear down...
