The rosters for the four All-Star teams were revealed on Wednesday evening. The Capitals will have two representatives for the Metropolitan division: goaltender Braden Holtby and defenseman John Carlson.
This is Holtby’s fourth straight trip to the ASG, but remarkably, Carlson’s first-ever appearance.
The Metropolitan division’s captain will be Sidney Crosby, since fan-voted favorite Alex Ovechkin announced early in the day that he would not be attending. He will likely be suspended one regular-season game as a consequence.
