Heiskanen recorded two assists, four shots on goal, two hits, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Flames in Game 3.

Heiskanen logged a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 4-2 win over the Ducks. Heiskanen needed the last game of the season to establish a new career high in points with 36.

He added 156 shots on net, 92 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in 70 appearances.

Heiskanen picked up his 30th assist of the year on a Jason Robertson goal in the third period.

He's up to 34 points, 135 shots on net, 82 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 62 outings. While he's dished out a career high in helpers, his four goals represent his lowest scoring count in his four-year career.

Does Miro Heiskanen Have a Case for the Norris Trophy? Yes … And No

One of the fun things we get to do as the season winds down is discuss who does or doesn’t deserve hockey’s Oscars. Just last week, Dallas had front-row seats to Auston Matthews figuratively and literally running away with the Rocket Richard Trophy for most goals in a season. The Stars, meanwhile, have not done anything quite so spectacular. Nobody on Dallas’ roster is in the running for the Vezina (best goaltender), the Calder (best rookie), the Art Ross (most points), or the Hart (most valuable player). There is, however, one award we can talk about: the Norris trophy, given to the league’s best defenseman. And, yes, Miro Heiskanen belongs in that discussion.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Produces two helpers

Heiskanen notched two assists, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Blackhawks. Heiskanen set up Jamie Benn on a first-period power play and added the secondary helper on Tyler Seguin's third-period marker. This was Heiskanen's first multi-point effort since Jan. 21. The Finnish blueliner has still put together a strong season with 33 points, 130 shots on net, 79 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating in 60 appearances. He needs two more points to match his career high from 2019-20.

The 22-year-old defenseman is up to 31 points in 57 outings, giving him a chance to challenge his career high of 35 points from the 2019-20 campaign.

Stars' Miro Heiskanen: Sets up overtime tally

Heiskanen notched an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks. In just his second game back from a bout with mononucleosis, Heiskanen led all Stars skaters with 27:23 of ice time. His last shift Thursday was a big one, as he made a couple of key defensive plays before setting up Jamie Benn's overtime goal. The helper put Heiskanen at 30 points for the third time in his four-year career. The Finn has added 118 shots on net, 74 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 54 outings this season, and he should be a lock for a top-four role the rest of the way as the Stars battle for a playoff spot.
