NEW YORK -- For the third straight week, Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons is the top vote-getter in the 2015 NHL All-Star Fan Vote presented by SiriusXM with 1,089,865 votes. The second, third and fourth spots are once again occupied by Chicago Blackhawks teammates Patrick Kane (586,310), Jonathan Toews (573,198) and Duncan Keith (567,184), respectively while goaltender Corey Crawford has moved into the fifth spot with 501,259 votes. More than 20 million votes from 196 countries have been cast to date, up 120% from four weeks of voting in the fan vote campaign for the 2012 NHL All-Star Game.
Girgensons' vote surge continues to be led by Sabres fans and hockey fans in his native Latvia, accounting for more than 80% of his total votes.
If voting ended today, forwards Girgensons, Kane, Toews; defensemen Keith and PK Subban (460,966) of the Montreal Canadiens; and goaltender Crawford would be bound for the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game.
