Sullivan named NHL Offensive Player of the Week

The National Hockey League announced Monday that Predators right wing Steve Sullivan has been named the NHL's Offensive Player of the Week for the period ending October 16. Sullivan collected 7 points (4 g, 3 a) in three road games to help the Predators extend their season-opening unbeaten streak to five games.

Transcript: Steve Sullivan's Oct. 17 conference call with NHL media

Sullivan tallied 3 points (1 g, 2 a), all in the third period, in the Predators' 5-4 comeback win at Colorado Wednesday and had 3 more points (2 g, 1 a) in a 5-4 shootout at Phoenix Thursday. He finished the week with one goal in a 4-1 victory at St. Louis Saturday, Nashville's first win at Savvis Center since Jan. 4, 2001.

With 10 points (4 g, 6 a) in five games, Sullivan has a share of the NHL points lead with Philadelphia Flyers players Simon Gagne (7-3--10) and Peter Forsberg (0-10--10). The 31-year-old Timmins, Ontario native has averaged well in excess of a point per game in a Predators uniform since arriving from Chicago in a February 2004 trade, notching 40 points (13 g, 27 a) in 29 games.

Sullivan has been tapped for the Offensive Player of the Week honor once before as a member of the Predators. He scored 10 points (5 g, 5 a) in his first three games in a Nashville uniform en route to the award for the week ending February 22, 2004. He was also named NHL Offensive Player of the Month for December 2001 as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Gagne, who posted 7 points (4 g, 3 a) in three games, Maple Leafs right wing Jeff O'Neill (4 g, 3 a for 7 points in four games) and Carolina Hurricanes center Rod Brind'Amour (3 g, 2 a for 5 points in two games) were runners-up for offensive honors last week.
