BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Another Sabre is going to Vegas. Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin earned a spot on the NHL All-Star team. As of now, he’s the sole representative of the Sabres in the All-Star Game that will take place in Las Vegas in early February.

This is the first All-Star appearance for Dahlin in his young career. The defenseman has 22 points (6 goals, 16 assists) in 35 games so far this season. He’s the first Sabres defenseman to make the All-Star team since Brian Campbell in 2008.

Teammate Tage Thompson is still eligible to make the All-Star team as well. Fans can vote in the NHL’s “Last Men In” campaign until Monday, January 17th.

The NHL’s All-Star Weekend is scheduled for February 4th and 5th.
