Canucks Radim Vrbata Selected to NHL All-Star Game

DH Vancouver Staff Jan 10, 2015 3:18 pm

Radim Vrbata will be the lone representative from the Vancouver Canucks to play in the NHL All-Star game in Columbus later this month. 

Vrbata will be playing in the first all-star game of his career, which is remarkable considering he scored 35 goals in 2011-12. Since joining the team as a free agent this summer, Vrbata has proven to be a good fit on the Canucks first line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin. He has also been a fixture on an improved Canucks power play this season.

The Canucks’ winger currently leads the team in goal scoring with 16 and is on pace to tie his career high.

Vrbata will join former Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo in the game, while Daniel and Henrik Sedin were left off the team.
