NEW YORK, January 18, 2022 – The National Hockey League announced today that New York Rangers forward Mika Zibanejad has been selected to participate in the 2022 NHL All-Star Game through the NHL All-Star “Last Men In” fan vote. Due to personal reasons, Zibanejad will not be attending the All-Star Game.

Zibanejad, 28, has been selected to his first career All-Star Game and is the third member of the Rangers (Chris Kreider and Adam Fox) to be selected to the event in Las Vegas on February 5.

It is the 34th time in franchise history that the Rangers have had three or more players selected to the same All-Star Game and first since 2011-12 (Henrik Lundqvist, Dan Girardi, Marian Gaborik). Since 1976-77, New York has had three or more players selected to an All-Star Game nine times (2021-22, 2011-12, 2001-02, 1996-97, 1995-96, 1993-94, 1992-93, 1991-92, 1976-77).

Zibanejad has recorded 14 goals and 21 assists for 35 points and a plus-7 rating in 39 games this season for New York. Among Rangers, he ranks second in goals, third in assists and tied for third in points. His seven power-play goals are second on the team behind Kreider’s 12.

The Stockholm, Sweden native has tallied nine goals and five assists for 14 points in his last 11 games and is currently riding a five-game point streak (3G-2A). Since December 15, Zibanejad is tied for the most goals in the NHL (9) and tied for the eighth-most points in the league (14).

In 643 career NHL games split between the Rangers and Ottawa Senators, Zibanejad has notched 214 goals and 255 assists for 469 points and 73 power play goals. Since being acquired by the Rangers on July 18, 2016, Zibanejad has registered 318 points (150G-168A) in 362 games, his 150th goal with New York coming on January 15 at Philadelphia.

Since 2016-17, he leads the Rangers in goals, assists, points, power play goals (61), power play points (110), and game-winning goals (25).
