For the third year in a row, Jack Eichel will represent the Buffalo Sabres at the 2020 NHL All-Star Game in St. Louis. In 39 contests this season, the 23-year-old captain has registered a team-high 52 points.

As of today, Eichel’s point total is good for seventh in the league, while his 24 goals place him fourth. He is currently on pace to shatter his career-high goal and point totals of 28 and 82, respectively.

At the 2019 All-Star Game in San Jose, Eichel participated in the fastest skater competition where he finished second only to Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers. In the Atlantic Division’s first-round game against the Metropolitan, he scored one goal in a 7-4 loss.
