Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos (Atlantic), Colorado Avalanche center Nazem Kadri (Central), New York Rangers center Mika Zibanejad (Metropolitan) and Anaheim Ducks winger Troy Terry (Pacific) were voted in as the Last Men In for the 2022 NHL All-Star Game.

Fan vote determined the final selections for each of the four All-Star teams, which represent each NHL division. The NHL All-Star Game follows a 3-on-3 format where the Central Division takes on the Pacific and the Metropolitan takes on the Atlantic, with the two winners facing off to determine the All-Star champion.

The 11 players of the winning team split a $1 million prize.

Here is a look at the final rosters for the Feb. 5 game, set for Las Vegas.

Stamkos has compiled 46 points (18 goals, 28 assists) in 39 appearances this season for the Lightning, who are back-to-back Stanley Cup champions. Tampa is off to a 26-9-5 start to put itself well in position for potentially a third straight Cup.

Zibanejad has 35 points (14 goals, 21 assists) in 39 games for the Metropolitan-leading Rangers this season. Terry is sixth in the NHL in goals (22) and has added 14 assists for the Ducks, emerging as one of the sport's rising young stars. Kadri is second in the NHL in assists (35), creating arguably the league's best one-two punch at center with Nathan MacKinnon. 

Auston Matthews (Atlantic), MacKinnon (Central), Alex Ovechkin (Metropolitan) and Connor McDavid (Pacific) were named captains, as determined by a fan vote.

Since the NHL moved to its current format, the Pacific and Metropolitan Divisions have each won three times. The Atlantic and Central are yet to be crowned All-Star champions, and the Central has only beaten the Pacific one time in six tries.

The NHL will also hold a Skills Challenge, which is set for Feb. 4.
