The Swedish phenomenon has been electrifying Vancouver fans since his debut last season, when he was awarded the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year.
The 21-year-old has put up 41 points this year through 40 games, leading the squad in goals (18), points and game-winning goals (six).
He’s also put up a dozen multi-point games so far and is the second-fastest Canuck to hit 100 career points, notching the milestone in his 103rd game. Pavel Bure retains that record, having put up 100 points in just 96 games.
Rookie defenceman Quinn Hughes, another rising Canucks star, failed to make the first cut — but could still play in the all-star weekend if he proves popular enough with fans.
Hughes is in contention to be the “Last Man In” for the Pacific Division team, a contest that opens to fan voting on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020 and closes on Friday, Jan. 10. You can vote for Hughes here starting Wednesday.
