Islanders young star C Mathew Barzal has been selected to represent his team in the 2019 NHL All-Star Game.
Barzal, who will play in his first career All-Star Game, has been the center of the Isles' success on the offensive end this season. He leads the team with 36 points, and has a team-high 26 assists as well.
This selection comes a few days after being named the Player of the Week in the NHL. He had six points with five goals and one assist last week that came on a hat-trick last Saturday against the Maple Leafs.
The San Jose Sharks' SAP Center will be the location for the All-Star Game that will take place on January 26.
