-SN- Posted January 3, 2015 Share Posted January 3, 2015 The Chicago Blackhawks will be prominently represented at the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game, with five of their players revealed Saturday as part of the first six NHL All-Stars. Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons will join Blackhawks forwards Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, and goaltender Corey Crawford at NHL All-Star Weekend, Jan. 24-25 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Girgensons, the Sabres' second-year center, topped all vote-getters with 1,574,896. The 20-year-old has 11 goals and 20 points in 39 games. Helping push Girgensons to the All-Star Game have been two passionate fan bases: Sabres fans, and ones in his native Latvia. "It's a little bit embarrassing and funny at the same time," Girgensons recently told The Associated Press. "It came out of nowhere. I know people know me back home, but I didn't think it was going to go that far. That's like crazy far." http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=746923&navid=DL|NHL|home This is why online fan voting should not exist. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
