Brad Marchand has been named to the 2018 NHL All-Star teams.
The 63rd NHL All-Star Game takes place Jan. 28 in Tampa, Fla., and will keep its familiar four-team format that started back in 2016.
This means that Marchand will represent the Atlantic Division team in the three-on-three tournament between all-star teams from the NHL’s four divisions.
I thought David Pastrnak deserved his first nod but the Tampa Bay Lightning had four worthy players named to the team. With the game in their home arena, this sin’t a huge surprise.
