Devan Dubnyk to represent Wild in NHL All-Star Game

Devan Dubnyk is going to Nashville.

The goalie, in his second season with the team, will be the Wild’s lone all-star representative in this year’s NHL All-Star Game at the end of January in Nashville, Tenn. It’s Dubnyk’s first career all-star game.

After being acquired in January last year in a trade with the Coyotes, Dubnyk resurrected the Wild’s playoff hopes. After floundering near the bottom of the Western Conference, the Dubnyk acquisition seemed to ignite the team, which then went on a run to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, before being swept by the Chicago Blackhawks.

This year, Dubnyk is 17-11-3 with a 2.28 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.  He ranks third in the NHL with four shutouts.

Dubnyk is the 10th all-star in team history. The others are Marian Gaborik, Filip Kuba, Dwayne Roloson, Brian Rolston, Niklas Backstrom, Brent Burns, Martin Havlat, Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter.
