Mike Green will represent Red Wings at All-Star Game

Schenn's 17 goals and 27 assists this season put him on pace to shatter career highs in both categories. Green was also named an NHL First-Team All-Star in 2009 and 2010 after leading the league's defensemen in points in back-to-back seasons. This will mark Kane's seventh trip to the All-Star Game, and he'll represent the Central Division in a format that includes a three-on-three style game and four divisions competing. This season, Pietrangelo has collected 29 points (seven goals, 22 assists) and a plus-15 rating through 41 games.

The NHL's scoring leader Kucherov will make his second straight All-Star appearance.

This may be Eichel's first All-Star game but you can bet it won't be his last.

Burns is also tied for fourth amongst all National Hockey League skaters in shots (172), and leads the Sharks in assists (23) and time on ice, averaging 25:19 per game.

North Chelmsford native Jack Eichel, a third-year standout for the Buffalo Sabres, made his first All-Star team.

The NHL All-Star Game will be a terrific experience for Noah Hanifin, and the Carolina Hurricanes will benefit from that in the long run to be sure.

Also selected to the Pacific Division team, coached by Gerard Gallant of the Vegas Golden Knights, were Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty and Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings, James Neal and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Golden Knights, Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau, Vancouver's Brock Boeser, Anaheim's Rickard Rakell and Anaheim's Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

The Lightning and the City of Tampa are hosting the All-Star Game for the second time.

The 2018 NHL All-Star Skills Competition will be held on January 27 at 6 p.m. CT, while the game will be held on January 28 at 2:30 p.m. CT. Both events will be held at AMALIE Arena.
