The Penguins aren't the only team sending four players to the NHL All-Star game at the end of them month. The Chicago Blackhawks just added another pair to bump their total from 2 to 4.
Joing captain Jonathan Toews and defenseman Duncan Keith will be forward Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp. Kane finished 5th for forwards in the fan voting while Sharp wasn't even on the ballot and was a write in.
Sharp who has a team and conference high 25 goals scored is well deserving of making his first all-star team while Kane is an old seasoned pro at this making his second.
Toews and Keith like Kane are also making their second appearance.
A former Blackhawks will also be making his first appearance and that is Dustin Byfuglien. It will be very interesting to see how the teams shake out. Maybe we can have all five of the guys on the same team or maybe Keith and Buff have to defend against Sharp, Kane and Toews.
It is going to be a fun weekend and congrats to all the guys who made it.
