According to the Canadian Press on Monday, former Calgary Hitmen goaltender Martin Jones of the Los Angeles Kings was named the National Hockey League's second star of the week from December 9-15.

In three games, Jones posted a record of 3-0 with a 1.00 goals against average and a .972 save percentage. Jones shutout the Montreal Canadiens on December 10, and then beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on December 11 in the second game of a back-to-back on the road. He then made 37 saves in 39 shot attempts in a 5-2 win in Ottawa on December 14.

It also looks like Jones will be the Kings' number one goaltender while Jonathan Quick continues to recover from a groin injury. However, Ben Scrivens has posted outstanding numbers as well. He is 7-3 with a 1.66 goals against average and a .941 save percentage with three shutouts.

The Kings are currently in fourth place in the Western Conference with 48 points and have given up a National Hockey League least 68 goals.

Jones, a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, played for the Hitmen from 2006-2010, and was the Western Hockey League's top goaltender in 2010. He also holds the Hitmen record for most wins in a season with 45.
