BREAKING: Bol Bol Officially Announces He'll Have Season-Ending Surgery and Prepare for NBA Draft

BREAKING: Bol Bol Officially Announces He'll Have Season-Ending Surgery and Prepare for NBA Draft ​And just like that, the most interesting player in college basketball has been temporarily snuffed out. ​Bol Bol, the 7-2 stud who's far more than just a sharp-shooting curiosity and comes from beyond-impressive bloodlines, has unfortunately inherited a bit of fragility, too. Bol's foot injury has now spiraled into something that needs season-ending surgery, and he confirmed the rumors from earlier on Thursday by noting that he'll now be switching his focus to the ​NBA Draft.

The 2019 National Hockey League All - Star Game will be held at SAP Center in San Jose, home of the San Jose Sharks on January 26, 2019 . San Jose last held the NHL All Star Game in 1997.

The votes have been counted, and the final four players for the 2019 All-Star Game have been announced. The “Last Men In” this year are Jeff Skinner (Atlantic), Kris Letang (Metropolitan), Gabriel Landeskog (Central) and Leon Draisaitl (Pacific).

While this was obviously a fan vote, it does come with some interesting consequences. First of all, it means that the Montreal Canadiens will not have a representative included at the event, after Carey Price decided to pull out due to nagging injuries. Shea Weber was up for the Atlantic fan vote but lost to Skinner, leaving Montreal on the outside looking in while also having to sit Price for at least one game.

Carey Price will not participate in 2019 All-Star Game

Carey Price will not participate in 2019 All-Star Game The Montreal Canadiens have decided that the long-term health of Carey Price is more important than his appearance at this year’s All-Star game. GM Marc Bergevin announced on Monday that Price will not attend the event scheduled for later this month, instead will use the time to rest an injury. We took the time to discuss the situation with Carey and the medical group earlier today, and we all agreed that the best decision for him would be to rest and recuperate during the upcoming All-Star Break. Carey has had a nagging injury for some time, and we want to make sure to have him healthy and rested for the second half of the season.

There will also be plenty of deserving candidates that have been left out, perhaps most notably Mark Giordano and Morgan Rielly who look ready to challenge for the Norris Trophy this year given their outstanding offensive production. Giordano’s team will in fact only have a single representative at the event despite the Calgary Flames currently being in first place in the entire Western Conference and second in the NHL.

Still, all four of these players are deserving of accolades this season and were obviously the fan favorites. That’s what the All-Star Game is all about, and the crowd in San Jose will surely be pleased to see the incredible talents each can bring. The game is set for Jan. 26.
