Nick Suzuki is invited to the All-Star Game

Last year in Las Vegas, Nick Suzuki was invited to the first All-Star Game of his career.

And this year, he will return. The captain of the Canadiens is one of eight players from the Atlantic section to be invited to the event. In 38 games, Suzuki has 32 points, including 15 goals. Even if he is in a slightly more difficult sequence, he is the best scorer in CH.

In 2023, the All-Star Game will be presented in Florida, in the Panthers amphitheater.

Besides Suzuki, Nikita Kucherov (TB), Dylan Larkin (DET), Mitchell Marner (TOR), Tage Thompson (BUF), brothers Tkachuk (OTT and FLO) and Linus Ullmark (BOS) are the other guests of the division.

Thompson and Ullmark will be participating for the first time.

Since the Boston Bruins are the team with the most points in this section, their head coach, Jim Montgomery, will be behind the bench. Rod Brind’Amour will be for the metropolitan.

Here are the nominees from the other Eastern Division:

Andrei Svechnikov (CAR)

Johnny Gaudreau (CBJ)

Jack Hughes (NJD)

Brock Nelson (NYI)

Igor Shesterkin (NYR)

Kevin Hayes (PHI)

Sidney Crosby (PIT)

Alex Ovehckin (WAS)

And those in the West:

As you can see from the table above, three more players can be invited by fan votes. Will Cole Caufield be voted out for the first time in his career? With 22 goals in 38 games (ahead of tonight’s game), the American will have to be looked upon by people. Canadian fans, vote in large numbers.

Apart from Caufield and Suzuki, I don’t see another Montreal player being selected. Not even Jake Allen, who just won the Molson Cup…


At 9 p.m., the ballot will open.
