No. 3: Ryan McDonagh (3 assists)

Ryan McDonagh has arguably been the team's best defenseman all season, and that didn't change this week, as McDonagh was solid in both ends of the ice against Toronto, Washington and Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old continues to shine offensively, picking up three assists in the three games, including a gorgeous pass from his own end to spring Carl Hagelin on a breakaway, which he scored on to tie the game, 3-3, in the third period against the Capitals. Despite facing three offensively-charged teams, McDonagh finished the week with an even plus-minus rating.
