2019 NHL All Star Game – Rosters, Schedule, and Brief Notes

For the second time in franchise history, the San Jose Sharks will serve as the host team for NHL All Star Weekend. This year’s schedule includes the annual Skills Competition on Friday night, followed by the 2019 All Star Game on Saturday afternoon. Both events will be staged at the SAP Center, home to the Sharks since their introduction to the league in 1991.

Using the format that was first rolled out at the 2016 festivities, this year’s All Star Game format will feature a 3-on-3 tournament within the game – where the two divisions square off in the first period, and the two other divisions play in the second period; then the winners meet for a $1-million prize in the third period.

This year’s rosters are as follows:

Atlantic Division

F Nikita Kucherov, TBL

Jon Cooper of the Lightning (Atlantic), Todd Rierden of the Capitals (Metropolitan), Bill Peters of the Flames (Pacific) and Paul Maurice of the Jets (Central) will be the four coaches for the All Star Game.

Typically an offensive showcase, this year’s event will feature eight players currently sitting in the top 11 of NHL points: Kucherov (76 points), Rantanen (74), Gaudreau (73), McDavid (73), Kane (71), MacKinnon (71), Draisaitl (61), and Wheeler (60). The only players missing from that list are Brayden Point (Tampa Bay Lightning), Mitch Marner (Toronto Maple Leafs), and Sean Monahan (Calgary Flames).

A few days after All Star Weekend concludes, the NHL will ramp up the second half if its season and teams will be making a push toward the playoffs. If you want to get in on any betting action at that point, click here to visit one of the places names as the best NHL betting site.
