Roman Josi, defenseman for the Nashville Predators, will play in the central division team of the all star game along side his team mate Shea Weber and Pekka Rinne. The all star game of this year will also be hosted by Nashville, which makes it an all star game at home for Josi.
With 9 goals and 21 assists Josi is the top scorer of his team and all this as a defenseman (!). Roman Josi will be the third Swiss ice hockey player to be selected for an all star game, after Mark Streit and Jonas Hiller. Unfortunatley Nino Niederreiter isn’t playing on top of his game at the moment and didn’t make it into the all star game, but there will be the next chance in 2017.
