The Hockey News Player of the Week for the period of Jan. 7 to Jan. 13 is Philadelphia left winger Scott Hartnell.

Hartnell nearly doubled his goal total over four games, scoring five times to bring his season output to 11.

The Flyers forward sandwiched a hat trick versus the Rangers with one-goal games against Atlanta and Boston as Philly took seven of a possible eight points during the week.

He also tacked on three assists to bring his weeklong point total to eight points in four games.

The 25-year-old Hartnell was acquired from Nashville last June and signed a six-year, $25.2-million deal with Philadelphia to forgo becoming an unrestricted free agent.

He has 22 points through 41 games this year.
