Alex DeBrincat thrilled to represent Detroit Red Wings at the upcoming 2024 NHL All-Star Game!
Alex DeBrincat has earned his second NHL All-Star selection in his National Hockey League career, and he'll proudly represent the Detroit Red Wings at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena in less than a month. As anticipated, he's thrilled to once again receive the honor of being named an All-Star.
The Michigan native is in his 1st season with Detroit
It was during the offseason that DeBrincat was acquired by the Red Wings to fulfill a major need, which was goal-scoring. Detroit brought him in from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Dominik Kubalik, prospect defenceman Donovan Sebrango, a conditional 2024 first-round draft pick, and Detroit's fourth-round selection in 2024.
Through his first 39 games played in the Winged Wheel, DeBrincat has 38 points (17G, 21A) and is on pace to reach an impressive 80 points.

Naturally, DeBrincat is excited to be representing the Red Wings on the big stage alongside the NHL's biggest names, which was announced earlier this week.
“It's very exciting, I think that obviously it's something you dream about as a kid, and it's a fun event to be a part of I feel like,” he said following today's practice. “Obviously, it's definitely cool to be the Red Wings representative.”
“I mean, it's been fun,” he said when asked about how he feels about the first half of his inaugural Red Wings campaign. “We have a great group of guys, and I think we've gone through ups and downs. But it's all going to make us better in the long run, and I've had a fun year.”
