The NHL All-Star game is a time when hockey’s biggest stars can show their personality a little bit during the season and it is generally one of the most entertaining times for fans during the year. This season, like all others, features some of the NHL’s most popular players, but there are some notable players who were snubbed from this year’s roster.
Trevor Zegras is the first player who seems like one of the biggest snubs for the Pacific Division’s roster. He is the type of flashy player that the weekend is supposed to be all about. The 20-year-old memorably made one of the best assists we have seen ever in the NHL earlier this season.
Artemi Panarin of the New York Rangers is another snub from this year’s game. He is clearly the best offensive forward on his team and one of the most dynamic players in hockey. Panarin ranks 16th for the lead in the NHL with points and he will be missed in an All-Star game based around showing off skills, which Panarin has some of the best in the NHL.
Brad Marchand is possibly the biggest snub from the All-Star game, and he didn’t even make the Last Men In ballot so it is possible he declined to participate. The Bruins’ forward leads the team in goals (19), assists (20) and points (39). That point total is good for ninth in the NHL, and only seven players have scored more goals than him on the season.
