Boston Bruins

Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark has been named to the 2023 NHL All-Star Game that will take on February 4th in Sunrise, Florida. Boasting an unreal 21-1-1 record, alongside a .939 save percentage and a 1.86 goals against average, the honor is well deserved.


    However, perhaps even more notable for the Bruins is who will NOT be headed to Florida come February. Neither Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak, or Brad Marchand were included on the roster for the Atlantic Division.

    Fans will still have the opportunity to vote in one of the three Bruins scoring threats through a Twitter vote that runs now through January 17th. Using the hashtag #NHLAllStarVote alongside the player’s full name, you can send Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand or David Pastrnak to Florida.

    But can you guess when the last time was that neither member of the “Perfection Line” trio were invited to participate in the battle of the NHL’s best, and who represented the Bruins that year? Find out below!

    The second overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Seguin spent three seasons with the Bruins, tallying 56 goals. The controversial young star was dealt to the Dallas Stars following the 2012-2013 season alongside Rich Peverley in a trade that brought Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith to Boston.
