The Nashville Predators have been on fire this year as they are first in the Western Conference. Many Predators players deserve for their name to be considered in the All-Star.

The NHL All-Star game this year will be held at the AMALIE Arena in Tampa, Florida, home of the Tampa Bay Lightning. This will be the 63rd All-Star game in NHL history and will be held on January  27th and 28th.

This will be the third All-Star game in which it is a 3-on-3 tournament, split up into each of the divisions. They first tried this method in 2016 in Nashville, and after the fans and the NHL liking it, they decided to keep it going.

Before the All-Star game itself, there will be many different skills competitions, such as the fastest skater, hardest shot, as well as a shootout. Each division will select 6 forwards, 3 defensemen, and one goalie.

Last season, the Predators only had one player selected to the All-Star game. P.K. Subban was the only Predator selected, as he was the captain of the Central Division team. The year before, when the All-Star game was held in Nashville, the Nashville Predators had 4 players selected to the All-Star game. Roman Josi, James Neal, Shea Weber and Pekka Rinne were selected that year.

The Predators have been playing great hockey so far this year, and a few players stick out. In the next few slides, I will talk about who I think should be considered to make the All-Star team. Obviously, not all these guys will make it, but every single one can make the case for it.
