scoring leader Kucherov will make his second straight All-Star appearance.
After registering seven assists in the Sharks' first 19 games, Burns, last season's Norris Trophy victor, has seven goals and 16 assists in his last 21 games.
The NHL All-Star Game will be played January 28 at Amalie Arena, with the Skills Competition to be held January 27. MacKinnon already has exceeded his goals total in 82 games last season (16) and is just a point shy of matching his overall production. This will mark Kane's seventh trip to the All-Star Game, and he'll represent the Central Division in a format that includes a three-on-three style game and four divisions competing.
This will be Stamkos' fifth NHL All-Star appearance. The center now ranks 3rd in the league with 52 points and is a career-high +19 just past the midway point of the season.
The league's announcement comes one day after Kane recorded his first-ever five-point game. He also has team-highs in game-winning goals (four), overtime goals (two), power-play points (17) and shots (136). Couture has made one all-star game in his career, in 2012. The teams also feature three defensemen and two goalies.
