Henrique, Larsson Picked As Youngstars; Devils Have No All-Stars

The New Jersey Devils will have two players going to All-Star weekend in Ottawa, but none will play in the showcase game.

The NHL announced that both Adam Henrique and Adam Larsson were two of 12 rookies chosen to participate in this year's all-star activities.

Henrique ranks second among rookies with 34 points (13g, 21a). His 13 goals are tied for first among first-year players, and he's second in assists. He trails fellow rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins by one point.

Larsson ranks second among all rookies in time on ice, averaging 21:41 per game. In 41 games this season, he's collected 14 points (2g, 12a).

The Devils won't have a representative in this year's All-Star game. They join the Carolina Hurricanes, Colorado Avalanche, Edmonton Oilers and Columbus Blue Jackets as teams without a representative for the game. Out of those four teams, New Jersey is the only one among the top eight teams in their conference.

New Jersey is also the only team from the Atlantic Division without a representative for the game.

All-Star weekend starts Thursday, January 6 with the player fantasy draft. The annual skills competition will take place on Saturday, January 28. The game will be on Sunday, January 29.
