2023 NHL All-Star Game: First 32 Revealed

With the 2022-2023 NHL season nearing its halfway point, the league is ready to showcase its best players at the All-Star Game.

Held on February 4th in sunny South Florida, the 2023 All-Star Game will boast some of the league’s brightest stars. It will also carry some of the biggest storylines, as there’s a chance players on rebuilding teams could be traded not long after the game.

Voting has changed a little this year, with the league choosing one player from each team. Fans then can vote for the remaining three (two skaters and one goalie) from each division beginning around 9 pm Eastern Time on January 5th and continuing until January 17th.

On January 5th, during the first and second intermission of the ESPN game, the league announced their All-Star selections. Keep in mind every team had to have at least one representative. Whether they genuinely do is a debate for another day.

The 32 selections chosen by the league are listed below, beginning with the Atlantic Division and ending with the Pacific Division.
