Byfuglien’s All-Star skates match neon sweater

Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien slams Anaheim’s Francois Beauchemin into the boards with this bone-shaking hit.

There is a counterpoint to the growing number of NHL all-stars withdrawing from the weekend’s festivities due to injuries with varying levels of apparent legitimacy.

Some players, especially the first-timers, are embracing the experience wholeheartedly.

Dallas star Tyler Seguin needed two exclamation marks to convey his excitement about heading to Columbus.

And the deserving Dustin Byfuglien has himself a new pair of skates just for the occasion:

Dustin Byfuglien; skates; All-Star Game

Byfuglien’s neon blades, tweeted out by Sportsnet’s Daren Millard (a Manitoba native and not-so-closet Jets fan), match perfectly with the All-Star Game’s fluorescent green uniforms.

Outfit coordinated.
