DETROIT - The National Hockey League today announced that Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green has been selected to represent the Atlantic Division at the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Game, which will be held on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 3:30 p.m.at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla.

North Chelmsford native Jack Eichel, a third-year standout for the Buffalo Sabres, made his first All-Star team. With 60 points, and 27 goals in only 43 games played, Kucherov is on pace for over 100 points this season, which would join him with elite company of names like Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, and current stars like Connor McDavid, and Sydney Crosby. He leads the Ducks with 15 goals, 16 assists and nine multi-point games.

Forward Vladimir Tarasenko represented St. Louis in the previous three All-Star competitions and was the only Blues player past year and in the 2015-16 season.

Each of the league's four divisions (Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central and Pacific) will have their own 3-on-3 squad comprised of players from teams within those divisions. The others were Dallas, Winnipeg and Nashville.

Kucherov is one of four Lightning representatives, along with defenseman Victor Hedman, forward Steven Stamkos and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy Forward Brock Boeser of the Vancouver Canucks is the only rookie selection.
