While I suspect he would prefer to take some time and enjoy some ice fishing the Jets defenceman has been chosen to represent the team at the 2015 All-Star game in Columbus later this month.  This is the third straight* time (2011, 2012 and 2015) that he has been named to the team.

Winnipeg Sun:  Byfuglien named all-star.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Byfuglien – our man at the All-Star game.

Hear his thoughts on being named to the All-Star team:

Dustin Byfuglien His thoughts on being named to the All-Star team.  On being added as a defenceman.  Didn’t get to go last time due to injury, does it mean more that he can go this time around?  Does it give him extra pride being named as a defenceman even though he’s only played defence for last six weeks.

*The 2013 All-Star game was cancelled due to lockout and there wasn’t one in 2014 due to the Olympics.

Another day of training camp in the books in Winnipeg as some Jets prepare to head to Montreal for the third pre-season game on Thursday.

The Jets playing group for tomorrow's game in Montreal is set and most skated together so the lines and D pairs can be "reasonably" inferred.
