Eichel Named to NHL All-Star Game
For the second year in a row Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel has been named to the NHL All-Star game. This year's game will be played at the SAP Center in San Jose on January 26th. For the fourth year in a row it'll be played in a 3 on 3 format.
Although he's tied for 2nd in goal scoring with 26 this season, Jeff Skinner was snubbed. But he could be added to the Atlantic Division squad if he's voted in by the fans in what the NHL is calling the "Last Men In" balloting.
Skinner will be among eight players vying to be the last player to complete the Atlantic Division squad. The league's three other divisions will also each have "Last Men In" balloting.
Voting begins at noon on Thursday (January 3rd) at NHL.com/All-Star fan vote and concludes on Thursday, January 10th at midnight.
