Despite not playing due to injury, Matthews will go to All-Star weekend in St. Louis.

Maple Leafs centre Auston Matthews won't take part in on-ice events at the NHL all-star video game, the group announced on Wednesday.

Toronto's leading scorer is getting treatment for an ongoing wrist injury, but will still be in St. Louis for all-star weekend. Since Matthews isn't avoiding the event totally, he also avoids a one-game suspension from the NHL.

@LeafsPR The NHL stated the 22-year-old will be changed by Senators forward Brady Tkachuk, whose sibling Matthew will represent the Pacific division. Both siblings are newbie all-stars.

Brady Tkachuk has 15 objectives and 12 helps in 48 games during his sophomore season with Ottawa.

Both Brady and Matthew matured in St. Louis, Mo. The Tkachuk family settled there while their daddy, Keith, bet the Blues for nine seasons from 2000-2010.

Andersen will represent Toronto on the ice in St. Louis, while Tkachuk

signs up with Ottawa colleague and fellow forward Anthony Duclair on the Atlantic roster.
