The Arizona Coyotes are sending a player to the 2015 NHL All-Star Game.
Defensemen Oliver Ekman-Larsson received the honors Saturday and will head to Columbus, Ohio on Jan. 25.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Sweden native is tied for the NHL-lead in scoring with 11 goals (19 points) and leads the league in game-winning goals with six. He has registered 43-87-130 in 298 career games with the Coyotes and won a silver medal in Sochi, Russia as a member of Sweden’s Olympic hockey team in 2014.
It will be his first All-Star Game appearance in his four years of professional experience.
