Well, he wanted to be in the NHL, and managed to get into the All-Star game. I imagine that when that sinks in, he will be pretty happy whatever happened!
But he didn't get into the All-Star Game - he was the team's league-mandated representative to the All-Star Superskills Competition. He probably drew the short straw.
But also, you guys are being harsh - yeah, he flubbed the first two tries - so did a lot of guys including Ovechkin, and I don't think too many of them were rookies who'd played just 27 NHL games, and only 23 of them this season. Kid's third shot was impressive, even if Price didn't try too hard to stop it. It still went in, and it's not like you're going to see those kinds of moves in a real game.
