Devils forward Taylor Hall earned his third straight NHL All-Star Game selection and second straight with New Jersey, the club announced Wednesday.
Hall was named to his first All-Star team during the 2015-2016 season, his last with the Edmonton Oilers.
The 26-year-old will be the only Devil represented on the Metropolitan Division squad. He leads the Devils with 15 goals and 42 points in 39 games this season.
"It's an honor. I think when you come in the league and start playing games, obviously you want to win Stanley Cups and you want to be part of winning teams, but as an individual, you look forward to playing in All-Star Games and having that recognition," Hall said. "You should be proud of that. I'd love to be part of that weekend. It's so cool to be around the best players in the game and some guys you've looked up to for a long time."
The All-Star Game format consists of 11 players selected from each division to play a four-team, single-elimination tournament, with each game consisting of two 10-minute halves played 3-on-3. The division that wins the Skills Competition the previous night will have the option of who their first opponent in the tournament will be and whether they play in the first or second semifinal game.
The 63rd NHL All-Star Game will take place at Amelie Arena in Tampa, Florida on January 28.
