Five members of the Tampa Bay Lightning organization will represent the Bolts during the 2018 NHL All-Star Weekend in Tampa.

Turns out, Stamkos and Cooper will have plenty of familiar faces to keep them company during the League showcase in their hometown. MacKinnon already has exceeded his goals total in 82 games last season (16) and is just a point shy of matching his overall production.

After a slow start to the season, the 32-year-old was far from a lock to continue that streak. Kane, who has 18 goals and 27 assists this season, will make his seventh appearance in the game when he heads to Tampa Bay. Hedman and Kucherov will be making their second appearances. Couture has made one all-star game in his career, in 2012. Vasilevskiy leads the National Hockey League for all major goaltending categories. The teams also feature three defensemen and two goalies. His record is 13-14-2 with a 2.89 goals-against average and a.911 save percentage after winning the last two games.

Also selected to the Pacific Division team, coached by Gerard Gallant of the Vegas Golden Knights, were Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty and Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings, James Neal and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Golden Knights, Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau, Vancouver's Brock Boeser, Anaheim's Rickard Rakell and Anaheim's Oliver Ekman-Larsson. Among all defensemen, the King City, Ontario native ranks 10th in points, second in even-strength points (21), eighth in goals, 12th in assists, ninth in plus/minus and ninth in ice-time per game (25:36).
