ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Vladimir Tarasenko will represent the St. Louis Blues in the 2017 All-Star Game on Jan. 29 in Los Angeles, as reported on the Blues website.
The leading scorer for the Blues with 43 points this season is also tied for fourth in the NHL. Tarasenko has earned his third consecutive All-Star Game selection, becoming the first Blue to accomplish that since Chris Pronger (2000, 2001, 2002).
Tarasenko’s 20 goals in 40 games is on pace to match or better his 40-goal season last year.
The 2017 Honda NHL All-Star Game will be in Los Angeles on Jan. 29 and will use the same format as last season, with the four division teams playing in a 3-on-3 tournament. All-Star festivities will begin with the skills competition on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 6 p.m., and culminate with the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2:30 p.m. at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
