The voting for the 2015 NHL All-Star Game has a new leader.
Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons, who has 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 24 games, leads all players with nearly 400,000 votes. He’s a little more than 150,000 ahead of Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, who led the first wave of voting and currently has 240,362 votes.
The Chicago Blackhawks continue to dominate voting, with one or two players in the top four at each position.
Patrice Bergeron is the only Boston Bruins player on the forward leaderboard, ranking 25th with 44,359 votes. Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara (10th with 79,928 votes) and goaltender Tuukka Rask (seventh with 59,352 votes) are the other Boston players on the voting leaderboards.
Fans have until Jan. 1 to vote for players who deserve to be in this year’s All-Star Game, which will be hosted by the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Jan. 25.
