NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Predators rookie forward Filip Forsberg made the most of his first NHL All-Star Game scoring 2 times in a 17-12 for Team Toews in Columbus, Ohio.
Forsberg was the only rookie selected for this years’ game and won a car for being the last player picked in the team draft.
John Tavares of the New York Islanders matched an All-Star record with four goals.
The 29 goals were the most in the event’s 60-year history, eclipsing the 26-goal burst in North America’s 14-12 victory over the World in 2001.
Predators Captain Shea Weber did not score in 20 minutes of ice time but did record an assist in the victory to former Predator Ryan Suter.
Team Toews was coached by Predators head coach Peter Laviolette and his coaching staff who earned the right with the NHL’s best record at the halfway point.
