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.
