    The NHL has announced its selections for the 2018 All Star Game on Jan. 28 in Tampa Bay Vegas Golden Knights Customize Jersey, and three Vegas Golden Knights made the cut.

    Marc Andre Fleury and James Neal were selected to play for the Pacific Division team.

    I didn t expect this because I haven t played too many games this year, Fleury said. I m excited because it s always a nice honor to be a part of. I just feel like there s so many great players around the league and they only pick a few. It s an honor to be a part of those guys. It s part of the excitement of the All Star game.

    Fleury has an impressive record of 9 2 1 and leads the NHL in save percentage .945 and goals against average 1.73 amongst goalies with at least 12 starts. Neal has racked up 18 goals and 11 assists in the first half of the season with Vegas.

    I’m looking forward to representing our team in Tampa and share the All Star experience with Marc Andre and coach Gerard Gallant, Neal said. Having three representatives from the Golden Knights is a great honor https://www.goldenknightsunifo…ar-dansk-jersey-c-20.html, there are a bunch of guys on our team who are having All Star caliber seasons. Thanks to my teammates and coaches for their great play this season and Golden Knights fans for their unbelievable support.

    Leading the team to the best record in the Pacific Division at 28 10 2, head coach Gerard Gallant earned the right to coach the all star team.

    Notably missing from the selections were Vegas players William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault.

    Karlsson is tied for fifth in the NHL with 22 goals and has also pitched in 14 assists. The 25 year old center is second on the team with 36 points, behind only Marchessault.

    Marchessault leads the Golden Knights with 40 points 16 goals and 24 assists and, along with Karlsson and Reilly Smith, has led the most productive line in the league.

    Karlsson and Marchessault are both listed as possible injury replacements, so either could still end up in Tampa Bay if there are any injuries prior to the Jan. 28 event.

    This wouldn t be happening without the help of all of my https://www.goldenknightsunifo…eid-duke-jersey-c-21.html teammates, Fleury said. They ve helped me look good throughout the season. I thank them for that. There could have been a lot of guys from this team that got to go, don t you think? We ve got so many guys stepping up throughout the season... I wish the other guys could do this too and be a part of it. Too bad there s only a few of us going. We get to go because of all of the work that they ve done this season.

    The Golden Knights joined the Los Angeles Kings as the only teams to have multiple players selected for the Pacific Division’s all star team.

    Defensemen Drew Doughty Los Angeles https://www.goldenknightsunifo…e-lagace-jersey-c-19.html, Brent Burns San Jose and Oliver Ekman Larsson Arizona

    Goaltenders Marc Andre Fleury Vegas and Jonathan Quick Los Angeles

    Rookie sensation and scoring leader Brock Boeser will be the lone representative of the Vancouver Canucks at this year’s NHL All Star Game.

    The right winger’s selection came as no surprise as he leads all first year players in goals 22 and total scoring 40 points . But his nearest rival in that scoring race, Mathew Barzal of the New York Islanders 39 points was not an all star pick.

    Boeser is one of 12 players making their first appearances in the league’s showcase, along with Jack Eichel of the Buffalo Sabres and Blake Wheeler of the Winnipeg Jets, among others see list below .

    The league leading Tampa Bay Lightning are most heavily represented, with forward Nikita Kucherov, defenceman Victor Hedman and goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy named to the Atlantic Division team, joining centre Steven Stamkos Thomas Vanek Jersey, who was voted by fans as the Atlantic captain. Lightning coach John Cooper will coach that team.

    The Lightning’s four players are the most for any team…der-edler-jersey-c-8.html, while the L.A. Kings have three in the Pacific Division forward Anze Kopitar, defenceman Drew Doughty and goaltender Jonathan Quick .

    Eight other teams had more than one player selected, including the surprise Western Conference leading Vegas Golden Knights forward James Neal and goalie Marc Andre Fleury .

    Among the usual suspects making repeat appearances are Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, P.K. Subban, Patrick Kane and Eric Staal.

    For the third year, the all star format in 2018 is a four division, three game tournament played three on three. The winner takes in 1 million.

    The team captains as voted by fans are Stamkos Atlantic ,…del-zotto-jersey-c-9.html Ovechkin Metropolitan , Subban Central and Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers Pacific .

    The NHL All Star Game at Tampa’s Amalie Arena will be broadcast on CBC and Sportsnet in Canada on Sunday, Jan. 28, at 12 30 p.m. PT. The skills competition is a day earlier at 4 30 p.m. PT.

    Alex DeBrincat had one of the best junior hockey careers Patrick Sharp Jersey, ever. Playing in the OHL for the Erie Otters, DeBrincat became the first player in 40 years to score 50 goals in three straight seasons. His 137 rating is second all time in OHL history. At the end of the 2016 2017 season, he received the Red Tilson Trophy as the top player in the OHL after he led Erie to an OHL title.

    Despite his massive success in juniors, a lot of critics had their doubts about DeBrincat when the Chicago Blackhawks drafted him 39th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The winger is quite undersized by NHL standards at just 5’7″ tall and weighing only 165 lbs. Nevertheless, the Michigan native made the Blackhawks roster in 2017 and has been a leading contributor all season.

    In the opening game of the season, Alex DeBrincat would register an assist in his first NHL game. This would foreshadow what was to come for the young star. Just five days later, the 19 year old would register his first NHL goal on Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens. Then, on November 27 against the Anaheim Ducks, DeBrincat would become the second youngest player in team history to record a hat trick. His game has translated to the NHL faster than anyone could have thought.

    Though DeBrincat may not win the Calder Trophy as the top rookie in the NHL Brock Boeser is the favorite , there is no denying that what the young winger has done for Chicago is nothing short of special. He is currently tied for third amongst rookie skaters with 13 goals on the season. He is also tied for fifth in total points with 26 at the midway point of the season. Lastly, his 5 rating is better than that of Brock Boeser https://www.blackhawkschifans.…don-saad-jersey-c-15.html, Clayton Keller, and Mathew Barzal.

    The Blackhawks have been up and down this season to this point. There’s no telling how worse off they would be without the strong play of Alex DeBrincat. He is tied for second on the Hawks in points https://www.blackhawkschifans.…an-toews-jersey-c-12.html, behind only Patrick Kane. His 17.3 shooting percentage is also second best on the Blackhawks. He has been durable for his team, too, appearing in all 39 games this season. It is clear the the young star has established a starring role for himself in just his first season.

    DeBrincat has had a successful first half to the season. Here is a look at what his stat line is on pace to look like

    Impressive numbers to say the least. For comparison

    His numbers are comparable to the 2016 2017 season of Logan Couture.

    Chicago is chasing a playoff spot and it will likely come down to the wire. They will need DeBrincat to play his best hockey in the second half of this season. He will be an integral part of any playoff push the team plans to make. If he can help the Hawks reach the playoffs for a 10th consecutive season, who knows where this team could go. They have the skill and experience to make a run https://www.blackhawkschifans.…schmaltz-jersey-c-14.html, but they need to find more consistency. DeBrincat can bring that consistency to this team.

    When Sidney Crosby is asked to describe his ideal linemate, it s mostly a matter of three words speed and give and go.

    Speed is so important, Crosby said after the Penguins beat Boston, 6 5 in overtime, Sunday night at PPG Paints Arena. Everyone s fast. So, number one, you ve got to be able to skate.

    The give and go is important. That probably tailors more to my strengths and how I like to play. That comes a little easier than the long, stretch pass or someone who likes to play a lot of one on one. The give and go game is probably the biggest thing.

    Crosby has centered a plethora of wingers since he came to Pittsburgh in 2005. The latest are two rookies Phil Kessel Jersey, 23 year old Dominik Simon and 20 year old Daniel Sprong, each summoned from the Penguins Wilkes Barre/Scranton farm club and drafted to play with Crosby by way of trying to balance the scoring among the Pens top three lines.

    Dominik and Spronger have done a nice job in this early part of their NHL careers, Coach Mike Sullivan said. It s going to be a game by game process for them. It s hard to bring it night in and night out. That s part of the learning process when you re dealing with young players.

    So far they ve had a couple of really strong games [skating on Crosby s line]. We re hoping we can build on that, and it certainly gives us the ability to create the balance we re looking for.

    Sprong is an intriguing topic, a natural goal scorer through Major Junior now skating with perhaps hockey s best playmaker. The Penguins selected Sprong in the second round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

    Sprong scored 18 goals in 29 games with the WBS Penguins this season. He netted 117 times in 199 games while skating with Charlottetown, P.E.I., of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

    Sprong says he s not intimidated by playing on Crosby s line.

    I try to play my game, Sprong said. The biggest thing for me is trying not to watch him all the time. He s such a great player.

    You just try to always be ready, and find the right spots to make it easy for him to give the puck. When I have it, he s always in the right spot, so it s easy for me to give him a pass. With Dom, we re starting to talk a lot out there. We re trying to find each other on the same page.

    Sprong is a shooter Witness 18 shots in five games with the Penguins since being called up from Wilkes/Barre Scranton.

    When I have a chance to shoot, I m going to shoot, Sprong said.…r-rowney-jersey-c-15.html Sid s an unbelievable passer and an unbelievable player. So I just try to put myself in the right spot and when I have a chance to shoot, I ve got to shoot.

    Crosby assisted each of Sprong s goals this season, both tallied in the Penguins 4 0 away win over the New York Islanders Jan. 5.

    They re quick, Crosby said of his current linemates. They ve got that energy and excitement, being in the NHL and playing some games. That urgency is there. We need that every night, and they certainly bring that.

    Spronger has got a great shot. Dom sees the ice well and makes little plays. We ve seen some good shifts so far, but it s been more that every line s found a way to play in the offensive zone. When you do that, you re getting tired defensive pairings and tired lines out there, and everyone benefits when that s happening.
