Artemi Panarin was surprisingly not selected to the NHL All-Star game as the Rangers' representative, and many were confused as to why that is. Artemi Panarin is currently tied for third in points, tied for third in goals, and is tied for 13th in assists this season.

When Rangers supporters learned that Panarin had not been voted in, it caused a stir on social media. Igor Shesterkin, the goaltender, was voted in instead, despite the fact that he hasn't performed up to par this season.

Panarin issued a statement on Rangers Twitter explaining why he would not be able to attend the all-star game, saying that the NHL would not be able to penalize him for a single game due to this.

So it was not a snub that Panarin was not sent to the All-Star game for the New York Rangers.

Hard to call it an All-star game when ten of the top-20 scorers in the NHL aren't on the initial roster. (Panarin, Nylander, Miller, Rantanen, Pettersson, Makar, Draisaitl, Bratt, Guentzel and Point).
Make it a true all-star game and have the best players. #NHL


Although Gregor makes a valid argument, the roster for the new all-star game format is smaller than it was in previous years due to being 3-on-3, and if you ever watch the game, let's just say nicely that it is really boring. The game is primarily intended for the enjoyment of attendees and kids.
