Want to know which of the game's top players will be coming to Tampa for the January 28 NHL All-Star Game?
The league announced the full All-Star rosters on Wednesday as selected by the NHL's hockey operations department. The teams will be split up by division (Atlantic, Metropolitan, Pacific, and Central), and will consist of eleven players (six forwards, three defensemen, and two goaltenders). "To be able to share that moment with them is going to be special, especially in front of our home fans who greatly deserve something like this and I'm sure we'll put on a great show". The 33-year old leads the team with 19 goals this season.
Also being rewarded for his standout season, Schenn lands his first All-Star appearance in his first season in St. Louis.
Hedman becomes the first defenseman in Lightning history to earn selection to multiple All-Star Games. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound defenseman was named a Second-Team NHL All-Star following both the 2011-12 and 2013-14 seasons. Tampa Bay's ice time leader (25:57/game) is now a league-best +24 and ranks 3rd amongst NHL defenseman in points.
For the first time in his three-year career, Jack Eichel is an All-Star.
Price started the season with a 3-7-1 record in his first 11 games, along with a 3.77 goals-against average and an.877 save percentage before being sidelined for 10 games with a lower-body injury suffered during a game in Minnesota on November 2.
