All-Star selections

The rosters for the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Game were announced this week, and it's really nice to see some of the young guys in there for the first time, Aleksander Barkov (Florida Panthers), Jack Eichel (Buffalo Sabres), Brayden Schenn (St. Louis Blues), Blake Wheeler (Winnipeg Jets) and Josh Bailey (New York Islanders) among them. Some of these guys have had good seasons in the past but were never rewarded with a selection.

Columbus Blue Jackets

The Blue Jackets already were playing good hockey this season, which is scary for the rest of the League, because forward Artemi Panarin didn't start to heat up until a couple of weeks ago. Panarin, who had 16 points (five goals, 11 assists) in his first 25 games this season, has 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) in his past seven games. He had two assists in a 6-4 win against the New York Islanders on Thursday to improve his season total to 21. Panarin also had five assists, each primary, in a 5-3 win at the New Jersey Devils last Friday.
