They project:

  • Goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who the New York Post says is having his best season for the New York Rangers since the 2011-12 season, is expected to be between the pipes for the Metropolitan Division. It would be the legend’s fourth All-Star appearance.
  • Center William Karlsson is having quite a year in the debut season for the Vegas Golden Knights and registered the franchise’s first hat trick on New Year’s Eve. And defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson is having another standout season for Arizona – despite plenty of trade rumors. Both are projected for the Pacific Division team.

Stay tuned to find out which Swedes make it to the big game on Jan. 28!
