  • Price named sole Hab at NHL All-Star game

Wednesday afternoon, the National Hockey League released the rosters for the 2018 All-Star Game, which will be held on January 28 at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida. The All-Star event will consist of a skills competition (Jan. 27), followed by the three-game tournament in a 3-on-3 fashion.

Last season Wayne Simmonds was the Flyers selection and won the MVP of the All-Star game and this year Claude Giroux is the sole Flyers player going to the All-Star game. The 25-year-old is now tied for first on the Habs in points with 23 but is leading all players in goals with 16 (11 at even strength and 4 on the power play).

Jakub Voracek is the first player we will profile. Vladimir Tarasenko and his team high 19 goals was not selected. The Calgary, Alberta, native was also an AHL All-Rookie Team member and Calder Cup champion with the Hershey Bears as a first-year pro in 2005-06, totaling 51 points (12-39-51) and 105 penalty minutes in 68 AHL games from 2005-07. He proved to be a bargain, tallying 65 points (28 goals, 37 assists) in 2016-17, and has continued to prove himself this season. He was tied with Schenn for the team lead in points (44) this season.

"(It's) deserving", Canucks coach Travis Green said "He's had a lot of good things happen to him this year. San Antonio has two games, both at home.

With the format changed to four teams the number of players picked to a team has gone down from 20 skaters and three goalies to nine skaters, and two goalies.

Edmonton's Connor McDavid was voted as the captain of the Pacific Division team earlier this month.

The Atlantic Division will be headed by Stamkos, who has his NHL club leading the league in goals per game at 3.7. Seven of those goals were scored in a six-game goal streak, the second-longest streak in the National Hockey League this season, after Nikita Kucherov (seven) of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
