Nashville Predators goalie Juuse Saros and prospect Alexandre Carrier have been named to their first career AHL All-Star team, according to nashvillepredators.com.
Saros is currently on the Predators roster, backing up Pekka Rinne. Before he was called up, he was tearing up the AHL. Saros currently ranks second in both save percentage (.938) and goals-against-average (1.76), and third in wins (11) - despite playing in just 13 games.
As good as he has been in the Milwaukee, Saros has been even better with Nashville. He is 3-2-1 (including his first NHL shutout), with a miniscule 1.16 goals-against-average, and a ridiculous .957 save percentage.
Carrier is in his first season in Milwaukee after being drafted by the Preds in the fourth round in 2015. He helped Canada win a bronze medal at the Under-18 World Championship in 2014. Carrier is tied for 10th among AHL defensemen in scoring - 4 goals, 16 assists, 20 points.
The 2017 AHL All-Star Classic will be held Jan. 28-30 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
