NHL All-Star Game 2022 Betting Preview

The NHL All-Star game is back in our lives after a gap year last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

One team from each of the Atlantic, Pacific, Central, and Metropolitan divisions have been voted for by the fans, the editors, and the writers from the official NHL website too.

Live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, we'll see the best of the best going head-to-head in the skills games and then in the three vs three tournaments.

Let's take a look at the rosters and break down what we can expect to see this weekend.

NHL All-Star Game 2022 - February 5th, 2022, 19:00 EST


For the sixth year in a row, we'll see a mini-tournament between fan and journalist-elected teams selected from each of the four divisions in the NHL.

There will be a skill-games event between the teams the night before, with the winning team able to select their opponent in the semi-final of the all-star game tournament.

The other two teams will then face off against each other, before a final later in the night. 

Each game is three vs three, with ten-minute halves to show a big difference from a regular league game that would take place usually.

Atlantic Division roster

  • F Patrice Bergeron, BOS
  • F Jonathan Huberdeau, FLA
  • F Dylan Larkin, DET
  • F Auston Matthews, TOR (captain)
  • F Steven Stamkos, TBL
  • F Nick Suzuki, MTL
  • F Brady Tkachuk *
  • D Rasmus Dahlin, BUF
  • D Victor Hedman, TBL
  • G Jack Campbell, TOR
  • G Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB

* replaced OTT F Drake Batherson (injury)

Arguably the best and most balanced roster of the lot, Atlantic are likely to be a force to be reckoned with.

Eight of their eleven players selected for the mini-tournament have previously been selected for the game, which is more than any of the other divisions.

On top of that, the likes of Steven Stamkos and Andrei Vasilevskiy make this team a very strong 'top-heavy' side but they also possess the freshness and hunger of first-time all-stars Nick Suzuki and Jack Campbell.

Metropolitan Division roster

  • F Sebastian Aho, CAR
  • F Claude Giroux, PHI
  • F Jake Guentzel, PIT
  • F Jack Hughes, NJD
  • F Evgeny Kuznetsov, WSH*
  • F Chris Kreider, NYR
  • F Alex Ovechkin, WSH (captain)
  • D Adam Pelech, NYI
  • D Zach Werenski, CBJ
  • G Frederik Andersen, CAR
  • G Tristan Jarry, PIT

* replaced NYR D Adam Fox (injury)

The Metropolitan division has got arguably the best player in the league on their team and he'll be the captain too, in Alex Ovechkin.

The Capitals forward is appearing in his eighth all-star game at 36-years-old and will look to lead the team to a victory despite struggling in recent years during the mini-tournament.

Adding in Sebastian Aho who has scored 16 goals and assisted 22 at just 24-years-old, as well as Kris Kreider from the New York Rangers, Evgeny Kuznetzov from the Washington Capitals, and the second-best goalie in terms of Goals Against on average with Frederik Andersen, you just never know.

Central Division roster

  • F Kyle Connor, WPG
  • F Alex DeBrincat, CHI
  • F Nazem Kadri, COL 
  • F Kirill Kaprizov, MIN 
  • F Clayton Keller, ARI
  • F Jordan Kyrou, STL
  • F Joe Pavelski, DAL (captain)
  • D Roman Josi, NSH*
  • D Cale Makar, COL
  • G Juuse Saros, NSH
  • G Cam Talbot, MIN

* replaced COL F Nathan MacKinnon (injury)

Of the 20 players in this year's selection making their first appearance in an all-star game, eight of them will come from the Central Division.

That could quite easily be a big advantage for them though, with the hunger and excitement coming through in their play as well as the eagerness to make an impression on all the seasoned veterans who have been there and done it before.

With their energy, skill, hunger, and ability to go with their youth, they have a really good chance to go all the way and make a name for themselves early on in their career.

Pacific Division roster

  • F Leon Draisaitl, EDM
  • F Jordan Eberle, SEA
  • F Johnny Gaudreau, CGY
  • F Adrian Kempe, LAK
  • F Connor McDavid, EDM (captain)
  • F Timo Meier, SJS
  • F Mark Stone, VGK
  • F Troy Terry, ANA
  • D Alex Pietrangelo, VGK
  • G John Gibson, ANA
  • G Thatcher Demko, VAN

24-year-old Connor McDavid is without a doubt one of the most exciting players in the league right now, and he captains the division for the first time in his career.

McDavid so far this season has scored 19 goals and assisted 34 goals in 34 games so far this season, and he'll be joined by Leon Draisaitl (26G/28A in 35 games), Timo Meier (20G/25A in 35 games), and Troy Terry (22G/14A in 38 games) for a trio that is at the peak of their powers.

They'll be incredibly exciting to watch and have the ability to go all the way, but their goalies will likely let them down in the end.
