Blackhawks' Patrick Kane named an NHL All-Star again

Blackhawks' Patrick Kane named an NHL All-Star again

- The Wild will be sending its most consistent producer to the NHL's All-Star Game later this month in Tampa, as center Eric Staal was named to the Central Division's roster Wednesday.

An NHL All-Star Game weekend just wouldn't be the same without Sharks defenseman Brent Burns. This year's game is January 28 in Tampa, Fla. and will again feature 11 players from each of the NHL's four divisions.

Top scorer Nikita Kucherov, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy and defenseman Victor Hedman will join captain Steven Stamkos for the skills competition and 3-on-3 tournament January 27-28 in Tampa, Florida. Those 30 points are tied for sixth in the league among defensemen, and he is second in even-strength points (22).

Also being rewarded for his standout season, Schenn lands his first All-Star appearance in his first season in St. Louis. The all-star skills competition is the night before the game.

One Red Wing was named to this year's All-Star Game, defenseman Mike Green.

Staal leads the team with 37 points (19 goals, 18 assists) and has helped hold things together through a mediocre first half of the season.

It's now more hard to have multiple players from one team because of the divisional 3-on-3 format and the National Hockey League insisting on every team have at least one player represented. The teams also feature three defensemen and two goalies.

Metropolitan Division: Josh Bailey, Islanders; Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh; Claude Giroux, Philadelphia; Taylor Hall, New Jersey; Alex Ovechkin, Washington; John Tavares, Islanders.
