St. Louis Blues forward Jordan Kyrou is an NHL All-Star for the first time.
Kyrou was the lone Blues player named to the 10-man Central Division squad when All-Star rosters were announced Thursday night. Forward Robert Thomas is one of eight Central Division nominees for the "Last Men In" fan vote, which will enable an extra player in each division to join the festivities.
Kyrou, 23, leads the Blues with 36 points (14 goals, 22 assists) in 32 games this season. This is the first 82-game season during which he's been a regular member of the Blues' lineup.
Thomas, 22, has scored three goals and leads the Blues with 24 assists in 29 games.
The Central Division roster also includes Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon and defenseman Cale Makar, Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat, Jets forward Kyle Connor, Stars forward Joe Pavelski, Predators goalie Jusse Saros, Wild forward Kirill Kaprizov and goalie Cam Talbot, and Coyotes forward Clayton Keller, a St. Louis area native who grew up playing for the St. Louis Jr. Blues.
