The 2018 Honda NHL All-Star weekend will take place Saturday, Jan. 27 and Sunday, Jan. 28, in Tampa, Florida. This season, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound forward has posted 43 points (17 goals, 26 assists) and a plus-19 rating through 45 games. 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. Hedman and Kucherov will be making their second appearances. Prior to turning professional, Green logged 172 points (37-135-172) and 324 penalty minutes in 267 games for the WHL's Saskatoon Blades from 2000-05, where he was a WHL East First-Team All-Star in 2005. His 27 wins are three more than his closest competitor, and he's put up a League-best six shutouts, two more than any other goalie.
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).
Vasilevskiy also owns the top goals-against average (2.10) and save percentage (.933) among National Hockey League goalies with 15 or more starts.
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 league on Wednesday announced rosters for the January 28 event at Amalie Arena in Tampa (3:30 p.m., NBC).
