It should come as no surprise to Winnipeg Jets fans that defenceman Josh Morrissey is getting his due from the National Hockey League.

Morrissey was named the league’s second star of the week after saving his team with two consecutive overtime winners, and then matching the Jets’ record for assists by a defenceman in Sunday’s 7-2 romp over the Chicago Blackhawks.
