Thanks to his very solid first season in the NHL, Carl Hagelin was selected as part of a handful of rookies to take part in the Skills competition at the All-Star Game tonight in Ottawa.
In this otherwise boring video: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=35&id=152895 , you can see Alfredsson and Lundqvist picking which players take part in which event, and Hagelin is the first name on the board for the fastest skater, which I thought was very indicative of the respect his veteran peers and countrymen have for his speed (I think they have to pick a rookie for each event but still, high praise).
Watch tonight, starting at 7 ET, to see if Carl wins and/or beats the record.
It seems that, with Adam Henrique injured, Carl Hagelin will be participating in the NHL All-Stars Skill Competition as a member of the rookie squad.
Like the title says, Puck Daddy interviewed Carl here
They touch on playing college hockey, the Big Chill, and being a fan favorite at Yost. Nothing new but also cool to read about Carl. Here's to yelling BORK for 2 more days!
