PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was selected to the All-Star game for the second time on Wednesday.

The NHL tabbed Fleury as an injury replacement after Detroit's Jimmy Howard and Nashville's Pekka Rinne were injured.

The 30-year-old Fleury leads the league with six shutouts and is fourth in wins (22), sixth in goals-against average (2.16) and seventh in save percentage (.926).

Fleury became the third-youngest goaltender to reach 300 victories last November and his steady play is one of the main reasons Pittsburgh trails the first-place New York Islanders by a point in the Metropolitan Division.

Fleury will join teammates Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby for All-Star weekend in Columbus, Ohio, on Jan. 25.
