Vladimir Tarasenko beats Martin Jones over the right shoulder to score for the Central Division in the 2017 NHL All-Star Tournament. Despite the goal, the Central fell to the Pacific in the semi-finals of the tournament.
2017 was Tarasenko's third consecutive NHL All-Star Weekend, becoming the first Blue since Chris Pronger to be named an All-Star in three straight seasons. "He's earned it," Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He's been a really effective player for us… this has been his best all-around year. I think he's really maturing as a player, and he's done a heck of a job when the game has been on the line."
