The rosters for the 2017 All-Star Game in Los Angeles have been announced, where the Jets will be represented -- health permitting -- by Finnish rookie Patrik Laine.
But since Laine was officially diagnosed with a concussion just days ago, there is a strong possibility that the Jets will be sending another representative in his place. That could mean a trip to LA for Dustin Byfuglien, Winnipeg's four-time all-star; captain Blake Wheeler; Mark Scheifele, the Jets' number one centre; or Nikolaj Ehlers, the electric young Dane.
Even if Laine is unable to attend All-Star weekend, it's a significant accomplishment for the Jets' rookie. It speaks to how highly-regarded he is around the NHL already -- and, as reported by Chris Johnston, it triggers a $212,500 bonus clause in his contract. Not bad.
