Devils’ Jesper Bratt to replace injured Jack Hughes at 2024 NHL All-Star Game

Devils winger Jesper Bratt has been selected to replace his injured teammate, Jack Hughes, at this weekend's NHL All-Star game.

Hughes is unable to play due to an upper-body injury that has landed him on IR, but he’ll still be in attendance and is expected to serve as a co-captain alongside his brother Quinn Hughes at the All-Star Draft.

Bratt now gets to represent the organization at All-Star weekend for the first time in his career, and it is certainly a well-deserved honor.

The 25-year-old former sixth-round pick has been one of New Jersey’s most consistent offensive threats, leading the team with 31 assists, 50 points, six power-play goals and five game-winning goals.

Bratt also has 19 goals and he was red-hot coming into the break, recording points in seven of his last 10 games (five goals, two assists).
