Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane was named as his team's lone All-Star on Wednesday.

For his first full season as the number one goalie for the Lightning, Andrei Vasilevskiy is looking more and more like a franchise goalie. He also leads the league in assists by five over his teammate Claude Giroux.

The most recent time the Blues had more than one representative was 2015 when they had three players go: Tarasenko, Kevin Shattenkirk and Brian Elliott, who was a late add as an injury replacement. The Los Angeles Kings will send three players to Tampa: center Anze Kopitar, defenseman Drew Doughty and goalie Jonathan Quick.

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos (91) prepares for a faceoff. 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.

Pep Guardiola was also linked with a move for Evans late in the summer window, only for the transfer to fail to materialise. It is also reported that Manchester City are sniffing around the 30-year-old centre half.

Top scorer Nikita Kucherov, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy and defenseman Victor Hedman will join captain Steven Stamkos for the skills competition and 3-on-3 tournament January 27 and 28 in Tampa, Florida. He's tied for sixth among defensemen in points.

Giroux is now tied for second in the scoring race with 52 points and also tied for second in assists in the entire league with 38.

Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Nikita Kucherov (86) skates back to the bench after scoring a goal. Giroux has returned to the level of play that made him a runner-up for the 2013-14 Hart Memorial Trophy and the cover of the EA SPORTS NHL 13. He's also known for making a splash on the red carpet, either at the all-star game or the NHL Awards show.

Price started the season with a 3-7-1 record in his first 11 games, along with a 3.77 goals-against average and an.877 save percentage before being sidelined for 10 games with a lower-body injury suffered during a game in Minnesota on November 2.
