Jan 10 2017, 6:03 pm

Auston Matthews will be the Toronto Maple Leafs’ lone representative in the 2017 NHL All-Star Game in Los Angeles later this month. The 19-year-old star rookie was the second youngest player selected for the game.

Matthews is the youngest Leafs All-Star since Wendel Clark in 1986.

Matthews leads the Leafs in points (35) and goals (21) through 39 games and was an obvious selection.

The first-year pro will play on the Atlantic Division team, as once again the NHL goes with a four-team 3-on-3 tournament format.
