Cale Makar voted for Mikko Rantanen in NHL All-Star Game fan vote


Cale Makar had the same reaction as Avalanche fans to the NHL All-Star Game announcement last week.

Where is Mikko Rantanen?

“Obviously very honored. Do I think I should have been the first guy? No,” Makar said Tuesday morning. “I think Mikko should have been. But I don’t make those decisions. I mean, Mikko will get in, I think, for sure. They’re doing something wrong if he isn’t in.”

The All-Star Game selection structure begins with the league announcing exactly one player chosen from every team. Makar was selected to represent the Avalanche, meaning he will make his second All-Star Game appearance in his fourth season Feb. 4 in Sunrise, Fla.

The second stage is an online fan vote, which ends with three additional players per division joining the festivities.

Makar has exercised his democratic right.

“I’ve already voted for (Rantanen),” he said. “But he’ll be there.”
