David Pastrnak certainly left a solid impression during his first NHL All-Star Weekend.
The Boston Bruins winger started the trip to San Jose, Calif., out by winning the league’s shot accuracy contest in Friday’s Skills Competition. He followed that up with a couple of assists for the Atlantic Division in Saturday’s 3-on-3 tournament.
Playing alongside Buffalo Sabres teammates Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner, Pastrnak helped the Atlantic get on the board with a cross-ice backhanded pass to Eichel for the goal.
Later in the period, the 22-year turned heads with a sick saucer pass from the blue line into the slot, finding Skinner, who put his own flare onto the finishing touches for an All-Star-caliber goal.
Pastrnak and the Atlantic Division ultimately fell to the Metropolitan Division 7-4. The Metro advanced to beat the Central Division 10-5, winning the title.
With All-Star Weekend in the books, Pastrnak is headed back to Boston, where the Bruins are set to take on the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
