Players are given three points for First Star, two points for Second Star and one point for Third Star. At the conclusion of the 2012-13 season, the top five players in the standings earned the designation of the "Carolina Cash 5 Stars of the Year."
Thanks to a string of strong performances before his recall to Carolina, goalie Justin Peters captured the top spot in the 2012-13 season. Three of the team's top scorers - Zac Dalpe, Brett Sutter and Chris Terry - occupied spots two through four, while goaltender Dan Ellis, who spent the entire second half of the season in the NHL, rounded out the top five. Ties were broken based on which player earned the highest amounts of first or second stars.
