The Chicago Blackhawks haven’t had multiple All-Star players in a few seasons now. Besides Patrick Kane, not many players have been recognized by the fans.
The 2020 All-Star game takes place in St. Louis. On January 24th, the NHL will have their annual skills competition at 7 PM EST. On January 25th, the NHL will play the 3-on-3 All-Star game tournament starting at 7 PM EST.
Things are a lot different in the All-Star game as of late. Instead of having two team captains pick players for their teams, it goes by division now. It takes that excitement of seeing Eastern Conference stars be on the same team as Western Conference stars.
Of course, Patrick Kane will be in the All-Star game again. This will be Kane’s ninth time in the All-Star game. He is well-deserving of going. There are three players on the Blackhawks that are well-deserving too though. It’s not a surprise that some players were left out, especially when the fans vote.
People that vote go off of the player’s name. If they see Kane, they’ll click on Kane. The voting system is a lot different from other leagues. For the NHL, you click a player for each division to vote for. Later on, teams will promote their top player on social media to get the votes.
As Kane is the best player on the Blackhawks, they’ve promoted him for the last few years now. He has had a lot of cool All-Star game moments. A few that come to mind are the Super Kane and his “fight” with John Scott.
There will be no different this season. Kane will make new memories. Hopefully, the Central Division will win this season. Even though two of the last five Stanley Cup champions have come out of the Central, they’ve struggled to win All-Star games.
