The rosters are set.

The NHL released the names of 40 players selected to play in the 2018 NHL All-Star Game in Tampa on Wednesday. They’ll join the four All-Star captains – Steven Stamkos, Alex Ovechkin, PK Subban, and Connor McDavid – who were voted into the game by fans.

Taking place on January 28, the mid-season showcase will once again be a four-team three-on-three tournament with the winning team taking home a $1 prize. The Skills Competition takes place one day earlier.

All 31 NHL teams are represented, with 12 players making their first-ever appearance. The host Tampa Bay Lightning have the most players going to the game with four. The Los Angeles Kings (3) are the only other team with more than two players named.
