Mark Giordano has never needed validation of his capabilities at the National Hockey League level. So, when it was officially ruled out on Friday that the 35-year-old Calgary Flames captain would not be attending the 2019 NHL All-Star festivities in San Jose at the end of the month, his reaction was predictable. Burns will be making his sixth appearance at the NHL All-Star game while Rielly was also left out. “He’s not too worried about it.”Yet there’s no denying that Giordano is playing the best hockey of his career. “No, to be honest,” said Giordano who attended the 2015 and 2016 NHL All Star games.
