On Monday, the NHL released full All-Star schedules for each of its four segments, ahead of All-Star Weekend on January 24-25, but one spot in each group remains vacant.
For the second consecutive season, the league will allow fans to select the final four players from a list of 31 determined by the league’s hockey division. The highest rated voters in each division (each NHL team will have one candidate) will be added to the list of the respective team.
The title “Last Men In,” will be released to the public on January 1 at 12pm. ET via the NHL website and mobile app and closes January 10 at 11:59 pm ET.
