The National Hockey League All-Star game is always one of the funniest days on the calendar. Each team in the league will send at least one player to represent their team in a 3v3 tournament, with one team per division. Of course Chicago Blackhawks is a division of Team Central Division.
Usually, when you think of the Blackhawks at the All-Star Game, you immediately think of Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith or Corey Crawford. Well, two of those four are no longer on the team. Toews and Kane have both left the team so this is a new era in town.
Kane is still having a really good year but Alex DeBrincat deserves to surpass him. This is his first time attending such a big event and he should be proud. He is currently having a stellar scoring season with 23 goals and 9 assists for 32 points in 39 games.
Total assists is low but he is on a 48-goal streak, which will be one of the league leaders if he reaches that number. He is capable of scoring thanks to his shots and his level of play around the net.
The Chicago Blackhawks have an All-Star level player in Alex DeBrincat.
DeBrincat will be surrounded by elite talent. He will be on the bench with Central Division teammates Kyle Connor, Kirill Kaprizov, Clayton Keller, Jordan Kyrou, Nathan Mackinnon, Joe Pavelski, Cale Makar, Juuse Saros and Cam Talbot. It’s a very good team that has a legitimate chance of winning that.
That list of players is the original list given. The NHL conducted a “Last Man” vote for fans to vote for one more player for each team. Seth Jones was Chicago’s representative in the vote to try to bring in another Hawk but he was defeated by Nazem Kadri of Colorado Avalance. That confirms that only one Blackhawks player will be there in Vegas.
Honestly, whether DeBrincat is the right choice or not, the Hawks only deserve one player in the All-Star Game. This team has been miserable all season and none of the business has been positively noticed. Still, it would be fun to see DeBrincat get this opportunity.
You’ve heard about the great team he’s going to play for and there are some great players on other teams. Stars such as Connor McDavid, Auston Matthews and Leon Draisaitl among others will also perform their content. This is a must-see event for all hockey fans around the world.
