Four Russian Hockey Players to Take Part in 2015 NHL All-Star Game

Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeny Markin, Vladimir Tarasenko and Sergey Bobrovsky have been included into the list of 36 hockey players who will play in 2015 NHL All-Star game on January 25, in Columbus, Idaho.

      On Saturday night, the National Hockey League (NHL) named 36 hockey players who will show their skills at the 60th All-Star Game on January 25. Among the best players selected to play in the exhibition game are four Russians: forwards Alexander Ovechkin (Washington Capitals), Vladimir Tarasenko (St. Louis Blues), Evgeny Malkin (Pittsburg Penguins) and goaltender Sergey Bobrovsky (Columbus Blue Jackets).

      Ovechkin and Malkin already took part in the past NHL All-Star games, while young Tarasenko and Bobrovsky will make their debut as the league’s best players.

      The last two years, NHL fans were not able to see the dream game between the league’s most celebrated players. Last year, there was no game due to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, while in 2013 the game was cancelled due to the NHL lockout, Edmonton Journal reports.

      The NHL All-Star Game will take place at 3 p.m. on January 25 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Teams will be selected at an all-star draft, scheduled at 6 p.m. on January 23. The captains will be announced later this week.
