The rosters for the 2018 NHL All-Star Game were announced today, and for the second straight year, Brad Marchand will be the only Bruin participating in the festivities.

Despite missing a few games with an injury, Marchand leads the Bruins with 40 points in 32 games. He is tied for first in goals with 17 and is first on the team with 23 assists.

While one could have made the case for Patrice Bergeron or Tuukka Rask to make the team, Marchand is certainly deserving of this nod. He is one of the best left-wingers in the league and puts on a show every night.

Marchand joins a skilled Atlantic Division roster consisting of Erik Karlsson, Nikita Kucherov, and Steven Stamkos among others.

The 2018 NHL All-Star Game is Sunday, January 28 in Tampa Bay.
