NHL announces 2018 All-Star rosters
The NHL released its 2018 All-Star Game rosters on Wednesday.

The four head coaches for all-star weekend will be Jon Cooper of the Tampa Bay Lightning (Atlantic), Peter Laviolette of the Nashville Predators (Central), Barry Trotz of the Washington Capitals (Metro) and Gerard Gallant of the Vegas Golden Knights (Pacific).
Each club is represented during All-Star weekend, which runs Jan. 27-28 in Tampa Bay. The skills competition takes place on Jan. 27 and the all-star 3-on-3 tournament on Jan. 28.
