Tonight the National Hockey League will present its annual showcase of talent, flamboyance, personalities and characters. The best and brightest that the NHL has to offer will congregate in St. Louis where the likes of Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby and Patrick Kane will show the hockey world why the current talent level of NHL players is the highest it’s been in years. Artemiy Panarin was selected to represent the Rangers, but an upper body injury now sees Chris Kreider added to the list of Blueshirts at the All Star Game.
All Star Origins
