Dahlin says “Fans want to see Forwards” at All-Star Game

In a recent interview, Sabres Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin seemed well aware of the amount of forwards that were selected to the 2023 NHL All-Star Game, according to theScore.

“I guess the fans want to see forwards,” the Buffalo Sabres blue-liner told Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News on Monday. “It is what it is. I’m going on vacation and I’m going to have a good time, but, obviously, I want to be there. That’s just how it goes.” Via theScore.

Dahlin, the former number one overall, pick in the 2018 NHL draft, has slowly caught on to stardom. As his numbers have increased over the last several years, he has truly taken the next step into becoming a top defenseman in the league. Dahlin posted 53 total points last year as a defenseman and has already reached that bar this year. Dahlin has 53 points in only 46 games this compared to as many in 80 games last year. But, with even the absurd season he is having, Dahlin still seems to be bittersweet about not being selected to the All-Star Game. Also, having too many forwards in the game.

Even with a little demise to the forwards, Dahlin has expressed the good sides in not being selected. “The rest is well-needed for sure,” Dahlin said. “A few of us are going to have a good time – mental break and also a physical break. So I’m excited for that, too. Some days, you’ve got to take your day off if you have to, but I think the body gets used to it.” Via theScore.

Dahlin made comments on his fellow Buffalo Sabres, Tage Thompson on getting his first career appearance in the All-Star game. “People want to see his skill and what he’s good at,” Dahlin said. “So I’m super excited for him. I’m going to watch. I want him to do something sick out there and have a blast. I’m sure he’s going to do it a few times more in his career, but enjoy this moment, for sure.” Via theScore.
