2020 NHL All-Star Game: Rosters announced for all four divisional teams

The NHL released rosters for the 2020 NHL All-Star Game on Monday afternoon, providing fans a first look at the players that will be representing the league's four divisions during the event in St. Louis next month. Three Blues players will be among the chosen to help provide hometown representation in the host city. 

The roster unveil comes after the four team captains were announced last week. Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak will captain the Atlantic Division squad, Nathan MacKinnon will captain the Central and Connor McDavid will lead the Pacific. Alex Ovechkin was voted captain of the Metropolitan Division but will elect to skip the game in favor of rest.

A fan vote chooses the four captains while the league's hockey operations department selects the majority of the remaining 40 players (10 from each division) for the game. However, fans will also get to vote the Last Men In on each team

Once again this year, the All-Star Game will consist of a three-game tournament featuring one team representing each of the league's divisions. Those teams will play in a 3-on-3 format, the winners of the first round going on to play each other in the final.
