The National Hockey League announced today that Florida Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau has been named to the roster for the 2020 NHL All-Star Game held at Enterprise Center in St. Louis, MO on Saturday, January 25. Huberdeau’s All-Star Game appearance marks the first of his NHL career and he will also participate in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Friday, Januaury 24.

The 26-year-old Huberdeau has appeared in all 38 of Florida’s games this season and leads the Cats in points (53), goals (16), assists (37), even-strength points (35) and power-play points (18), while leading all Panthers forwards in plus/minus (+12). His 53 points rank him sixth in the NHL, while his 37 assists tie him for fourth among all skaters.

Huberdeau set a career-high with 92 points last season. He is currently on pace to become the first Panther to ever break the 100-point barrier.

a big LBC congrats to Jonathan! This is a well-earned honor.
