Gaborik is going to Atlanta

For the All-Star Game, not in trade. Sorry I didn’t mean to scare anyone. But seriously, Marian Gaborik will make his second All-Star Game appearance after being the Minnesota Wild’s first ever All-Star in 2002-03. Gaborik won the NHL’s Fastest Skater Competition that year, so he might compete in that event again unless he lets some of the younger guys go for it.

One of the reasons Marian Gaborik got attention for this year’s All-Star Game in Atlanta was his five-goal game on Dec. 20 against the New York Rangers. No player has achieved that feat in nearly 11 years. Now if he gets five goals in the All-Star game...oh, the great Gaborik.
