Braden Holtby Joins Ovi for All Stars

The NHL announced the full list of players heading to Florida for the All Star Game 27 and 28 January. Despite heavy lobbying, John Carlson was overlooked. He is listed as a potential replacement should someone become injured or unable to attend. That’s how Kuzy made it last time so who knows….

Former Cap Mike Green will be going for the second time in his career.

Congrats to Coach Trotz, Alex Ovechkin, and Braden Holtby.
