In After All: Jonathan Marchessault Added to 2022 NHL All-Star Game

Published

on

Amidst roster reshuffling for the 2022 NHL All-Star Game, Vegas Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault has been added to the All-Star Game’s rosters. He joins teammates Mark Stone, Alex Pietrangelo, and head coach Peter DeBoer as representatives for the Golden Knights. This is Marchessault’s first All-Star Game apperance.

Originally a “last men in” candidate, Marchessault has been added to the All-Star Game as the twelfth name for the Pacific Division. The NHL has had some adjusting to do with their All-Star Game rosters due to players like Nathan Mackinnon and Adam Fox getting injured, and most recently Alex Ovechkin testing positive for COVID-19.

The Vegas Golden Knights will host the 2022 NHL All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. The All-Star Skills competition starts on Feb 4th at 4:30 pm PST on ESPN with the All-Star Game following the next day at T-Mobile Arena at noon on ABC and ESPN+. You can find tickets to the All-Star Game here.

Two new Las Vegas-themed skills competitions that feature the Fountains of Bellagio and Blackjack were added this week.
