Flyers’ Travis Konecny Snubbed for All-Star Game — Again

Philadelphia Flyers right winger Travis Konecny is having a career season, but unless he replaces an injured player, he will not be going to the Feb. 4 All-Star Game in Florida.

When the NHL revealed the fans’ voting to add two skaters to the Metropolitan Division All-Stars late Thursday, Koencny was not selected.

Konecny has 24 goals — equaling his career high — and 48 points in 40 games.

Defenseman Adam Fox and forward Artemi Panarin, both from the New York Rangers, were added to the Metro in the fans’ vote.

Panarin has 12 goals — 12 fewer than Konecny — and 47 points.

Konecny was also bypassed two weeks ago when the NHL Hockey Operations Department, which apparently didn’t do much research, announced the All-star teams. Kevin Hayes, who is having a solid season, was chosen to represent the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 25-year-old Konecny took the first snub in stride. He said he was thrilled for Hayes and called it “awesome” he was selected.

“Kevin’s been great in this league for a long time, and done a lot of good things,” Konecny said at the time. “I mean, he deserves to be there.”

It will be Hayes’ first All-Star Game. Konecny was chosen in 2020. Hayes, 30, who scored his first career hat trick Tuesday against Anaheim, has 13 goals and 40 points.
