Devils forward Kyle Palmieri was named to his second-straight NHL All-Star game on Monday.
The 28-year-old leads the Devils with 27 points and 15 goals this season. Nico Hischier is currently second on the Devils with 22 points.
Palmieri participated in last season's All-Star festivities after he replaced then-teammate Taylor Hall on the Metropolitan Division roster.
The Smithtown, NY native that grew up in New Jersey was a 2009 first-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks and has played for the Devils since the 2015-16 season. He was traded to the Devils in June 2015 from the Ducks and signed a five-year extension with New Jersey in July of 2016.
His 50 points and 27 goals last season led the Devils. In 534 career games, Palmieri has 165 goals and 320 points.
This year's All-Star weekend will take place in St. Louis. The skills competition will take place on Jan. 24 with the All-Star Game taking place on Jan. 25.
