DETROIT >> Jimmy Howard was named to the 2015 NHL All Star Game, which will take place January 25 in Columbus.
It’s Howard’s second time as an All Star.
He last appeared in the 2012 game.
Howard started the game and gave up three goals on 14 shots.
The 2012 game was the first time the league had a “fantasy draft” to choose teams.
Howard was selected by Zdeno Chara and not Daniel Alfredsson, who at the time was with the Ottawa Senators.
