Detroit right winger and former Caxy Alex DeBrincat ’16 is set to make his second appearance in the NHL All-Star Game as the National Hockey League’s brightest stars descend on Toronto this weekend. DeBrincat made his All-Star Game debut in 2022 while playing for the Chicago Blackhawks.

After playing at Lake Forest Academy, DeBrincat joined the Erie Otters in the Ontario Hockey League for three seasons before making his NHL debut with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2017. During his time with the Blackhawks, he made his first All-Star Game appearance while also becoming the second-youngest player in franchise history to score at least 40 goals in a season.

In July 2022, DeBrincat was traded to the Ottawa Senators where he played in 81 games during the 2022-23 season. After just one season with the Senators, DeBrincat returned home to Michigan when he was traded to the Red Wings in July 2023.

DeBrincat enters the All-Star break with 43 points this season on 18 goals and 25 assists in 50 games for the Red Wings. On Jan. 31, he reached a career milestone by playing in his 500th career NHL game and holds career totals of 416 points with 205 goals and 211 assists.
