NEW YORK (CP) - Pittsburgh Penguins winger Mark Recchi, who recorded his 500th career goal Friday, is the NHL's first star of the week.

Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Fredrik Norrena was named the second star while Edmonton Oilers winger Ryan Smyth earned a third-star nod.

Recchi recorded three goals and three assists in two games last week. On Friday, he became the 38th player in league history to reach the 500-goal plateau when he scored in a 4-3 shootout win over Dallas. He has 17 goals and 31 assists in 48 games this season.
