The NHL's Hockey Operations Department selected 37 All-Stars for the upcoming 2020 NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 25 in St. Louis, and the league announced the rosters on Monday.

The list also includes divisional captains elected through the 2020 NHL All-Star Fan Vote presented by Adidas, which were announced on Dec. 21:

NHL @NHL

Your #NHLAllStar Division Captains will be as follows: Atlantic Division - David Pastrnak (@pastrnak96) Central Division - Nathan MacKinnon (@Mackinnon9) Metropolitan Division - Alex Ovechkin (@ovi8) Pacific Division - Connor McDavid (@cmcdavid97) https://t.co/YuU9ypQT4c

Ovechkin, however, disclosed on Friday that he will be skipping the All-Star festivities and cited the reason as having to "listen to my body" and "to get ready for the second half of the year." Per NHL rules, the Washington Capitals 12-time All-Star will be suspended one game for opting out. 

Below is a look at the players chosen by the league prior to the fan vote, which will add one player to each All-Star division roster.

The NHL revealed information on how to participate in the Last Men In vote beginning on Thursday:

NHL @NHL

ONE SPOT LEFT 🎟 Last Men In returns January 1! Vote from the list below to send one more player from the Metro Division to the #NHLAllStar Game. https://t.co/5AHIpcN3po

As the roster stands now, the defending champion St. Louis Blues have the most All-Stars with three. It marks the first All-Star nod for goaltender Jordan Binnington, the second for center Ryan O'Reilly—who won last year's Conn Smythe Trophy and Frank J. Selke Trophy winner—and the third for defenseman Alex Pietrangelo.

Seven squads (Blue Jackets, Bruins, Capitals, Flames, Jets, Leafs, Oilers) sport two All-Stars.

Perhaps the most notable omission is Penguins center Sidney Crosby. The 32-year-old three-time Stanley Cup champion will miss the All-Star Game and has been limited to 17 games this season due to a sports hernia that required surgery and landed him on injured reserve. Crosby was named the 2019 All-Star MVP.

The NHL requires each of the 31 franchises to have at least one representative and has followed a three-on-three tournament format since 2016. There are three 20-minute games between the four divisional teams.

The All-Star Game will be live from the Enterprise Center on Jan. 25 beginning at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, CBC, SN and TVAS.
