Couture was also a candidate to be selected for the game as he leads the Sharks with 16 goals.

Andrei Vasilevskiy was picked for his first career All-Star Game and becomes the third Lightning goaltender in franchise history to earn the distinction, joining Nikolai Khabibulin (2002, 2003) and Ben Bishop (2016).

Green will serve as a defender on the Atlantic Division's All-Star Team.

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