Tonight is going to be emotional for Buffalo Sabre Jeff Skinner.  Not only will it be his first meeting with his old team, but now, he's doing it as one of the latest to be added to the Allstar game.

When the original announcement came out about this year's lineup for the 2019 Allstar Game, many Sabres fans were scratching their heads.  As happy as we were to see that our captain Jack Eichel was included on the roster, many of us were saying, "Where the heck is Skinner?  How in the world did he get overlooked?"

The NHL did offer a #LastManIn competition though where fans could root for their favorite players to make it in after all.

According to WKBW, Skinner will be joining forward Gabriel Landeskog from Colorado, defenseman Kris Letang from Pittsburgh and forward Leon Draisaitl from Edmonton at the game in San Jose on January 26th.

Skinner is tied for second in the NHL with 29 goals.  This will be his second Allstar game appearance.
