Chicago Blackhawks will send four players to the 2017 NHL All-Star game

The number of Hawks to make the All-Star roster only underscores what many of us in Chicago already knew-this team is poised to make a deep run in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Each division is represented by six forwards, three defensemen and two goalies. Those restrictions essentially guarantee an elite forward or defenseman in each division will be a victim of the numbers game. He leads the National Hockey League in wins and ranks among the top five in save percentage and goals-against average.

"I definitely think [Panarin, Anisimov and Hossa] should be there", Toews said. "This time, it's a little bittersweet, I think".

A new format started at the All Star Game last season, which has made in a neat event to check out.

Speaking to the Chicago Sun-Times, Toews admitted to being confused and seemed slightly embarrassed about his election this year, considering his lack of production.

The 2017 Honda NHL All-Star Game will be in Los Angeles on January 29 and will use the same format as last season, with the four division teams playing in a 3-on-3 tournament. "If he's going to keep making it, that means he's playing at an elite level".

This is Smith's first selection to the All-Star Game.

But the All-Star snubs are numerous, too. For example, Cam Atkinson is now eighth league-wide in scoring, but he couldn't crack the Metro roster.

"It's terrific for them. well-deserved", Tortorella said. So who deserves to be in Los Angeles more than Cam Atkinson of the Columbus Blue Jackets? "If it came down to that, we'd have a couple other guys representing us instead of myself", he said.

Or how about Montreal's Max Pacioretty (34 points) and Alexander Radulov (31 points), the Canadiens' top two scorers during their outstanding season?

It is a great honor for Simmonds who leads the team in goals and is tied with Brayden Schenn for the team lead in power-play goals with eight.

Joe McDonald: Without a doubt, the Winnipeg Jets' Mark Scheifele should be an All-Star.

Jonathan Toews is heading to his sixth career NHL All-Star Game later this month.

The Washington Capitals have won six straight, keeping pace in the brutal Metropolitan Division. Toews admitted he didn't expect to be selected after missing about three weeks earlier this season with an injury.
