David Pastrnak trolls Leafs fans during All-Star introduction

Making sure they know!



Not surprisingly, sniper forward David Pastrnak is representing the Boston Bruins in Toronto at the NHL All-Star game, which includes the skills competition that is now underway from Scotiabank Arena. 

And he couldn't resist playing up the rivalry between the Original 6 and Atlantic Division foes Bruins and Maple Leafs to the largely pro-Leafs crowd in attendance. When his name was called during introductions to join the other NHL All-Stars for the Skills Competition, Pastrnak made sure to kiss the spoked-B on his sweater when he skated alongside Leafs forward William Nylander: 

The experience of playing alongside Pastrnak is something exciting for fellow NHL star Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers, who was also selected in the 2014 Draft.

“With ‘Pasta,’ we kind of grew up together, got drafted in the same year and been through the whole thing together,” Draisaitl said. “So, I’m excited to spend some time with him, I got to know him from spending some time in Prague.”

Meanwhile, Pastrnak is excited to play alongside the likes of both Draisaitl and Connor McDavid. 

“I’m excited to see how it’s going to be,” Pastrnak said. “They are both unbelievable players, two of the best in the world. I’m excited, and hopefully we can score some goals on Saturday and get the win.”

The man affectionately known as "Pasta" is enjoying yet another tremendously productive season for the Bruins, having already scored 33 goals with 39 assists in the 49 games that he's played, on pace to break the 50 goal mark.
