Jonathan Marchessault won’t be joining Golden Knights teammate Marc-Andre Fleury at the NHL All-Star Game.
The league announced the winners of its “Last Men In” competition Friday and Marchessault wasn’t among them. The forward was one of eight players eligible to be voted onto the Pacific Division roster via fan vote but he didn’t seem to take his chances seriously.
“It’s nice that they recognize your name a little bit but there’s so many good players in the NHL. Obviously, I don’t expect to go,” Marchessault said Jan. 3, the day after the “Last Men In” candidates were announced. “Whatever happens, happens.”
