All-Star weekend just keeps getting better for the Tkachuk family.
On Wednesday night the NHL announced Ottawa Senators forward Brady Tkachuk would be added to the Atlantic Division roster for Saturday's All-Star Game in St. Louis as an injury replacement for Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews
Brady joins his brother Matthew, a forward for the Calgary Flames, as a first time all-star. Both Matthew and Brady are St. Louis natives, and their dad, Keith, played for the Blues for nine seasons and was a two-time NHL all-star.
Matthew told 5 On Your Side on Wednesday that the family was already expecting a large group at the skills competition and game, and that he had bought out a suite for everyone.
