The NHL All-Star Game is less than a month away, and Jakob Silfverberg will represent the Anaheim Ducks on the Pacific Division team. It will be the first All-Star appearance of his career. The Enterprise Center, home of the St. Louis Blues, is set to host the game on January 25, 2020.
Congratulations to Jakob Silfverberg for being named an All-Star for the first time! In addition, Ryan Getzlaf was named a nominee for NHL All-Star Last Men In presented by adidas, with voting starting on New Year’s Day. https://t.co/jpZJ2ZQLIW— Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) December 30, 2019
When I briefly spoke to Silfverberg at a team event in October, he mentioned how happy he was to remain in Anaheim after signing a five-year extension back in March. His 13 goals and 26 points rank first on the team while he places fourth on the Ducks in assists with 13. Silfverberg leads Anaheim in power play goals with three and is tied with Derek Grant for first in shorthanded tallies with two.
The full rosters are below. Congratulations, Jakob!
