Adam Fox and Chris Kreider Selected to Participate in NHL All-Star Game

The National Hockey League announced today that Rangers defenseman Adam Fox and forward Chris Kreider have been selected to participate in the 2022 NHL All-Star Game on February 5 in Las Vegas.

It is also the first time since 2002-03 (Brian Leetch, Tom Poti) that New York has had multiple American-born players selected to the same All-Star Game.

He is one of seven defensemen in NHL history to record 107 or more assists in 162 or fewer games (Quinn Hughes, Sergei Zubov, Brian Leetch, Al MacInnis, Mark Howe, Stefan Persson).

Fox became the fourth Ranger to win the Norris Trophy since it was first presented in 1953-54, joining Doug Harvey (1961-62), Harry Howell (1966-67), and Brian Leetch (1991-92 and 1996-97).

Kreider, 30, is making his second appearance in an All-Star Game after replacing Artemi Panarin at the 2020 event in St. Louis.

The Boxford, Massachusetts native has cumulated 198 goals and 180 assists for 378 points in 610 career games and a plus/minus rating of plus-70.
