Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin was named to the 2015 All-Star Game today. The 2015 All-Star Game and festivities will take place Jan. 23-25 in Columbus, Ohio.
Seguin currently leads the NHL with 26 goals this season, while he ranks second in the League with 48 points (26-22=48) in 41 games. Seguin also shares fifth in the NHL with four game-winning goals this season and he ranks second in the League with 171 shots on goal.
The 22-year-old forward is tied for first in the NHL 15 multi-point games this season, including an NHL-best seven multi-goal outings. Seguin has recorded two hat tricks during the 2014-15 campaign and now has six career hat tricks, five of which have come since joining Dallas prior to the start of the 2013-14 season. Seguin's five hat tricks with the Stars ranks second in Dallas franchise history (since 1993-94), and is one away from tying Mike Modano for first on the Dallas franchise list. The forward's five hat tricks since the start of the 2013-14 season are also good for first in the NHL.
The native of Brampton, Ont. was named the NHL's First Star of the Week for the week ending Oct. 28, while also being named the League's Third Star of October after recording seven goals and 15 points (7-8=15) in the opening month of the season. Seguin also won the first segment of the Normandy Homes Three Stars of the Game voting for the 2014-15 season, earning a $1,000 donation to the Dallas Stars Foundation on his behalf from Normandy Homes.
This marks Seguin's second All-Star appearance, as he was also selected to the 2012 All-Star Game while with Boston.
