DETROIT — Jimmy Howard will be the Red Wings All-Star representative this year.

The goaltender will head to San Jose later this month.

In 26 games, Howard has a 10-9-5 record with a 2.72 goals against average and a .920 save percentage.

Howard has reinvigorated his career, after battling with Petr Mrazek for the starting job two years ago. He beat out Mrazek for the job, and the Czech netminder has played for the Flyers and Hurricanes since that point.

Dylan Larkin, who's playing at an All-Star level for the second straight season, won't make the initial roster for the star-studded and forward-heavy Atlantic division team. Larkin has 17 goals and 22 assists in 41 games for the Red Wings.

Carey Price is the other goaltender for the Atlantic division. Auston Matthews was voted the captain of the team.
