2020 NHL All-star Game Fan Vote
The NHL revealed information on how to participate in the Last Men In vote beginning on Thursday:
As the roster stands now, the defending champion St. Louis Blues have the most All-Stars with three. It marks the first All-Star nod for goaltender Jordan Binnington, the second for center Ryan O’Reilly—who won last year’s Conn Smythe Trophy and Frank J. Selke Trophy winner—and the third for defenseman Alex Pietrangelo.
Seven squads (Blue Jackets, Bruins, Capitals, Flames, Jets, Leafs, Oilers) sport two All-Stars.
Perhaps the most notable omission is Penguins center Sidney Crosby. The 32-year-old three-time Stanley Cup champion will miss the All-Star Game and has been limited to 17 games this season due to a sports hernia that required surgery and landed him on injured reserve. Crosby was named the 2019 All-Star MVP.
The NHL requires each of the 31 franchises to have at least one representative and has followed a three-on-three tournament format since 2016. There are three 20-minute games between the four divisional teams.
