Price started the season with a 3-7-1 record in his first 11 games, along with a 3.77 goals-against average and an.877 save percentage before being sidelined for 10 games with a lower-body injury suffered during a game in Minnesota on November 2.

The NHL released its 2018 All-Star Game rosters on Wednesday. The bigger story is who is not going to the game from the Flyers. He is the only player to be named an all-star four times as a member of the Sharks. Voracek is now 6th in overall scoring in the league trailing Giroux by only one point with 51 in total. Leading the National Hockey League in wins (27) and shutouts (6), along with being second in GAA (2.10) and save percentage (.933), the 23 year old is being compared to other elite goaltenders like Carey Price and Braden Holtby. At it now stands Voracek is on pace for 35 goals, 84 assists, and 100 points at the end of the year.

Regardless of the points, Gallagher has been the most consistent player all season. The 33-year old leads the team with 19 goals this season. Overall, Schenn has tallied 291 points (126 goals, 165 assists) in 478 career regular season games. "Things are just going better, the team is playing better". Also, it's tough not to say that Price isn't a top goaltender in the division considering how poor the other teams have been playing. That's awesome. William Karlsson has scored so many important goals for our team. San Antonio has two games, both at home. "A cornerstone of our franchise, he is among the game's most exceptional two-way players and is incredibly deserving of this honor".

A fan vote determined each division's team captain, the results of which were released last week. The league will once again use the 3-on-3 tournament format that they used a year ago. The Shootout is a disaster and makes the NHL the only major professional league to use a form of skills competition to decide games that actually matter in the standings. Being named to his second All-Star Game in his career, the unsafe Russian sniper will be a name you will be hearing for the rest of the year.
