Eric Staal will represent Wild in NHL All-Star Game

Tyler Johnson Nets Hat Trick In Win

Pietrangelo, 27, will be making his first All-Star Game appearance.

The NHL released its 2018 All-Star Game rosters on Wednesday. The Boston native is eighth among National Hockey League blueliners in goals (7).

Also being rewarded for his standout season, Schenn lands his first All-Star appearance in his first season in St. Louis. The skills competition will take place January 27, while the game will be played the following day, January 28. Among league leaders for defenseman in ice time on power plays and in shorthanded situations, his production during even strength (21 points) has also been excellent, ranking second among defenseman in that category.

Forward Vladimir Tarasenko represented St. Louis in the previous three All-Star competitions and was the only Blues player past year and in the 2015-16 season.

MacKinnon leads Colorado with 18 goals, 34 assists and 52 points in playing in all 41 games.

Captain Jamie Benn has the numbers to make the team (22 assists, 39 points) but missed out because of the limited amount of forward spots on the roster. Players from each of the divisions comprise the four teams in a single-elimination tournament. Burns had a combined 151 points the last two seasons, including 76 last season, a team record for a defenseman.

The Metro Division team will be coached by Barry Trotz of the Washington Capitals and have the Caps' Alex Ovechkin as the captain.
