It should come as no surprise, Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry was named to the Metro Division All-Star team. It will be Jarry’s second ASG appearance after being a replacement on the team in 2020. Penguins winger Jake Guentzel, who has scored in 18 straight games that he’s played could be in the All-Star Game, too.
Guenztel is the Penguins player labeled, LMI: Last-Man In. Each team has one LMI candidate. This season, Guentzel has 35 points (18-17-35) in just 29 games.
Among the most surprising All-Star Game LMI candidates is former Pittsburgh Penguins winger, and two-time Stanley Cup winner, Phil Kessel of the Arizona Coyotes.
This season, Tristan Jarry leads the NHL with a 1.91 GAA. His .932 save percentage and three shutouts rank third in the league. He has allowed two goals or less in 22 of his 28 appearances.
The All-Star Game will be held T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Feb. 5.
