New Jersey Devils forward Jesper Bratt is replacing injured Devils forward Jack Hughes at the 2024 NHL All-Star Game.

Hughes suffered an upper-body injury on Friday, Dec. 2nd against the Chicago Blackhawks. He’s missed 10 games since being injured. Hughes will still attend the All-Star weekend and draft his team with his brother, Quinn Hughes.

New York Islanders forward Mathew Barzal will replace Hughes in the Skills Competition.

Bratt is making his first career All-Star appearance. The Swedish forward leads the Devils with 50 points (19 goals and 31 assists). That includes six power-play goals and five game-winning goals. His 19 goals are second on the Devils to only Tyler Toffoli.

Bratt signed an eight-year, $63 million extension over the summer with the Devils to remain in New Jersey. In 436 games with the Devils in his seven-year career, Bratt recorded 326 points (121 goals and 205 assists). Last season, Bratt matched his career-high 73 points, posting the total in back-to-back seasons. However, Bratt recorded a career-high in goals (32) for the first 30-plus goal season of his career.
