This will be Stamkos' fifth NHL All-Star appearance.

With 44 points (17 goals, 27 assists), Schenn, 26, is tied with Vladimir Tarasenko for the team lead.

Kucherov was a shoe-in for his second-consecutive All-Star Game as he is the NHL's current scoring leader (60 points) and is tied with Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the National Hockey League goal lead with 27.

Vezina Trophy front-runner Vasilevskiy will make be appearing in his first career All-Star game. Coach Jon Cooper will coach the Atlantic team. The midseason showcase includes the NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Saturday, January 27 (7 p.m. start) followed by the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, January 28 (3:30 p.m. start). Among all defensemen, the King City, Ontario native ranks 10th in points, second in even-strength points (21), eighth in goals, 12th in assists, ninth in plus/minus and ninth in ice-time per game (25:36).

Price is the only member of the Canadiens who will play in the All-Star Game at Amalie Arena.
