The Devils representative at the 2020 NHL All-Star Game scored two goals in Metro's 9-5 loss to Atlantic. He also registered an assist.
His first goal tied the game at 2-2 at 3:38 of the opening period. It was an impressive solo effort from Hischier, who possessed the puck for a long time in the offensive zone before cutting to the net and scoring on a filthy move.
His second goal made it 5-4 for Metro at 2:50 of the second, as he finished off a nice pass from Philadelphia's Travis Konecny out in front.
