The NHL All-Stars, one of the world’s biggest and most popular sports events, will be back at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6, 2020.
The All-star game is played every four years and will feature some of the best athletes in the world.
Players from around the world are expected to be in attendance.
Here’s a look at who will be in the mix for the 2019 edition of the game.
* * * This year’s All-stars will feature a total of six NHL players, including: Brad Marchand, Tyler Seguin, Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos, Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid and Evgeni Malkin.
The list of NHL All Star players has changed quite a bit since last year’s game, when nine NHL players were named to the team.
In 2017, there were only four NHL players on the roster, which is an improvement on last year.
The roster also features three players who were part of the 2015-16 season, but the NHL announced last year that those players would not be playing in 2019.
