So there's no point in getting worked up that Hanifin was picked over more deserving defensemen like Jaccob Slavin and Brett Pesce, or that the current 3-on-3 format built around divisions means the National Hockey League annually takes four seconds to check whichever Hurricanes defenseman leads the team in scoring.

Carey Price certainly didn't look like an all-star at the beginning of this season, but the Canadiens' goaltender is headed to the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 28, in Tampa. Green was the only Detroit Red Wings player selected. He also leads the Red Wings in ice time (22:39). "They know the young guns in this league".

Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane was named as his team's lone All-Star on Wednesday.

Price has started 18 of the last 19 games and is expected to be back in goal when the Canadiens end their five-day break and face the Boston Bruins Saturday at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., CBC, SN, TVA Sports, TSN Radio 690).

Center Jonathan Toews and defenseman Duncan Keith missed the All-Star cut after making the game a year ago.

He hasn't put up the number he's used to and the team is a longshot to make the playoffs, but Carey Price will be an All-Star this year nonetheless.

It marks the fourth straight NHL All-Star Game selection for Doughty, who has 30 points in 42 games played this season.
