Wheeler (11), Hellebuyck (11), Klingberg (11), Kane (10) and Rinne (10) each received double-digit votes.
Tarasenko received the most votes (eight) of any player in any division that did not make a team. The Blues were represented by Schenn, their leading scorer (17 goals, 26 assists, 43 points), who received nine votes.
Connor McDavid, Edmonton Oilers (captain)
Brock Boeser, Vancouver Canucks
Johnny Gaudreau, Calgary Flames

The forwards selected to the Pacific team are a new breed.
Boeser leads NHL rookies in goals (22) and points (40), and was a unanimous selection to the NHL.com team.
The expansion Golden Knights have two representatives: Karlsson and Marchessault. Karlsson leads Vegas with 22 goals, tied for most in the Pacific Division with Boeser. Marchessault has 40 points, tied for fourth in the division with Boeser behind fellow all-stars McDavid (47), Gaudreau (46) and Kopitar (44).
Kopitar, who received 10 votes, is one of three selections from the Kings, who are in second place in the division, seven points behind the Golden Knights. He is joined by Doughty and Quick, each of whom was on each of the 12 ballots.
