Here is the full list of Pacific Division players and teams they will be representing:
Pacific Division All-Stars
|James Neal||Golden Knights||F|
|Marc-Andre Fleury||Golden Knights||G|
How the All-Star Teams are chosen remains a mystery. Not all of the members of the team are leading their respective teams in points, or goals, and in Jonathan Quick’s case save percentage or goals against average. Still it’s an honor to be chosen, and represent the team.
