Jim Montgomery has done everything right in his first year with the Bruins, and how they’ve performed has earned him a trip to this year’s NHL All-Star Game.
He joins Dallas Stars’ Pete DeBoer, Carolina Hurricanes’ Rod Brind’Amour and Vegas Golden Knights’ (and ex-B’s head coach) Bruce Cassidy. The decision is made by the teams that have the highest point percentage in their respective division.
This will be Montgomery’s first All-Star Game.
The Bruins are 32-4-4 through their first 40 games under Montgomery and have been atop the NHL standings for most of the season with a league-best 2.13 goals-against per game.
The NHL All-Star Game is set to take place Feb. 4.
Boston looks to move to 5-0-0 in the new year Thursday night when it hosts the Seattle Kraken at TD Garden for a 7 p.m. ET puck drop.
