Years Selected: 2015, 2016, 2017. Justin Faulk. 2. player. 109. . Defense

Canes co-captain defenseman Justin Faulk did spoil his chance at setting a record for most consecutive All-Star Game selections in franchise history. If you include Faulk’s 2012 selection to the Rookie All-Star Team, then he does own the record outright, surpassing Staal.

However, official record do not count a Rookie All-Star Team nod as an overall NHL All-Star Selection. Skinner is still the only Carolina rookie to participate in an actual All-Star Game in franchise history.

This is still a tremendous accomplishment for Faulk, to go to three consecutive All-Star Games. Faulk also participated in the first tournament style All-Star Weekend, for the Metropolitan Division in 2017.

The streak of Canes defensemen playing for their team and division is still alive as we now await the 2019 All-Star Weekend. If Faulk is still with the Canes by then, he has a huge opportunity to bounce back and compete with a possible fourth career selection.
