Vyborny player of the week

The NHL honored the right winger for his two-goal, five-assist output in three victories last week.
"It’s always nice to be named player of the week," Vyborny said after practice yesterday morning. "I think it’s for the whole team and how we’ve played better."
Vyborny had three assists in a 6-5 victory over Vancouver last Tuesday. He added two assists in a 4-3 victory over Minnesota on Friday. Against Nashville the next night, Vyborny scored two goals, including the winner, in a 4-3 victory.
In his past 11 games, he has eight goals and eight assists. The Blue Jackets won eight of those games.
Vyborny attributed much of his success to the continuity of playing on a line with fellow Czechs Jan Hrdina and Jaroslav Balastik, though Rick Nash replaced Balastik late in the victory Saturday.
