Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak has been one of the NHL’s most dominant offensive players this season and is tied for third in the league in goals with 19. As of Saturday afternoon, Pastrnak has tallied 29 points (19 goals, 10 assists) through 25 games and is the Bruins’ leading scorer so the 22-year-old must be a lock for the All-Star game one would have thought.
However, the NHL on Saturday opened voting for the 2019 All-Star Game, and Pastrnak somehow found himself off the ballot. The Bruins do have four players on the ballot — Patrice Bergeron (injured), Zdeno Chara (injured), Brad Marchand (down season for his standards) and Tuukka Rask (struggled all year till recently), but Pastrnak is nowhere to be found.
Let the ballot write-ins begin!!
