Chicago Blackhawks captain Mark McNeil will make his sixth straight All-Star team and eighth in a row, becoming just the fourth player in franchise history to do so.
The Blackhawks captain, who had been with the organization for 17 seasons, joins the franchise’s top three in points (23), goals (24), assists (22) and game-winning goals (nine) among players with at least 400 career NHL games.
McNeil, 32, has posted career highs in games played (130), goals scored (30), assists (+11) and points (27).
He has scored at least one goal in every game in each of his seven seasons with the Blackhawks, and has collected at least a point in five of the past six seasons.
The former New Jersey Devils, Columbus Blue Jackets and Dallas Stars captain has scored four goals and five assists in 17 career playoff games.
McNeil is tied for fifth in NHL history in points.
He becomes the sixth member of the Blackhawks’ franchise to make it to the All-Stars’ final five, joining Mike Modano (2001), Joe Thornton (2005), Duncan Keith (2007) and Patrick Kane (2016).
