Oliver Ekman-Larsson was named to the Pacific Division’s All-Star Team according to NHL.com. This year the All-Star festivities take place in Tampa Bay, FL on January 27 and 28.

This will be Ekman-Larsson’s second All-Star appearance as he also represented the Coyotes in 2015.

Here is the full list of Pacific Division players and teams they will be representing:

Pacific Division All-Stars

Player Team Position
Player Team Position
Brock Boeser Canucks F
Johnny Gaudreau Flames F
Anze Kopitar Kings F
Connor McDavid Oilers F
James Neal Golden Knights F
Rickard Rakell Ducks F
Brent Burns Sharks D
Drew Doughty Kings D
Oliver Ekman-Larsson Coyotes D
Marc-Andre Fleury Golden Knights G
Jonathan Quick Kings 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.

The All-Star skills competition will be aired on Saturday, January 27 at 5 p.m. local time on NBCSN. The All-Start Game will be aired on Sunday, January 28 at 1:30 p.m. local time on NBC.

Who would be on your All-Star Teams?
