Arizona Coyotes rookie goaltender Adin Hill was named Monday as one of the NHL’s “Three Stars of the Week.”

The 22-year-old stopped 59 of 60 shots faced over three games last week, compiling a 3-0-0 record with a 0.43 goals against average and a .983 save percentage. He also recorded a shutout.

Hill began the week on Tuesday at Minnesota when starter Antti Raanta, who remains day-to-day, was pulled from the game. Hill was serving as backup because Darcy Kuemper was also day-to-day. The former third-round pick tended goal for the third period and stopped each of the five shots he faced as the Coyotes came back from a 3-1 deficit to win 4-3.

On Thursday, Hill shut out the first-place Nashville Predators, making 29 saves as Arizona won 3-0.

And most recently, on Saturday, Hill let in one goal as the Coyotes cruised past the St. Louis Blues, 6-1, for team’s third straight victory. He made 25 saves.

According to the team, the British Columbia native is the first rookie in Coyotes history to receive an NHL Star of the Week.

Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele (first star) and Florida Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau (third star) were the other two recipients, putting Hill in some star-studded company.
