The NHL is announcing the All-Star representatives across the league and revealed the player who will represent the Philadelphia Flyers at the festivities. 

Travis Konecny who's becoming the Flyers' fastest rising star will represent the team in St. Louis on January 24 and 25. 

Konecny said the nomination caught him by surprise. 

"I didn't expect it, especially with some of the names that we have on our team, I didn't expect them to pick me," said Konecny. "It's something that you don't really think about until it happens. When you make the NHL, that's one of the first steps and you want to be successful and win the Stanley Cup with your team, but you never really think of making the All-Star Game. Now that it's come up, it's pretty amazing and I have a lot of people to thank for it."
