Arizona Coyotes forward Clayton Keller was named to his fourth All-Star Game which will take place February in Toronto, the NHL announced Thursday.
With the appearance, the 5-foot-10 178-pound Keller surpasses Keith Tkachuk and Teppo Numminen for the most in franchise history.
He has represented the Coyotes in three of the previous four years, and this marks his third straight season as an all-star. Only five of the 31 other initial all-stars have more appearances on their resume.
Keller leads Arizona with 31 total points, including 13 goals and 18 assists. He also leads the team with four game-winning goals and 103 shots.
The forward is second on the team with five power play goals and has six multi-point games, tied for the team lead. Keller has also shown positional versatility, picking up this close save.
