It must be the only time a player has represented a team at the ASG before ever having played for them.
There may have been others, but John Garrett played in the 1983 AS game as the Canucks' representative before playing a game as a Canuck. He nearly won the player of the game award too... until Gretzky scored 4 goals in the 3rd period.
