WILMINGTON -- Patrice Bergeron was named an NHL All-Star on Wednesday. The Bruins' center will represent the Atlantic Division in the new 3-on-3 tournament format in Nashville. This is the second consecutive and second overall All-Star nod for Patrice Bergeron. The silly event will take place Jan. 30-31 at Bridgestone Arena. Bergeron leads the Bruins with 37 points. With 15 goals, he'€™s on pace for a career-high 32 goals. Bergeron has hit the 30-goal mark twice in his career, reaching the plateau in 2005-06 (31 goals) and 2014-15 (30). Other All-Stars include Boston College product Johnny Gaudreau and former Bruins Jaromir Jagr and Tyler Seguin. Bergeron is the Bruins' only representative in the tournament, meaning Zdeno Chara will not be able to participate in the Hardest Shot competition for the second-straight All-Star game. Chara holds the record for hardest recorded shot at 108.8 miles per hour, set in 2012.
