The NHL has named the final 40 players to take part in a new 3-on-3 tournament at All-Star weekend later this month in Nashville, Tennessee.

Leading goal-scorer Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars and teammate Tyler Seguin headlined the All-Star selections for the Central Division, which will have top point-getter Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks as captain.

The division-leading Washington Capitals, Florida Panthers and host Nashville Predators each have three players expected to go.

Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and league-leading goaltender Braden Holtby will represent the Capitals on the Metropolitan Division team.

The Panthers, winners of 10 in a row, will have Atlantic Division captain Jaromir Jagr, defenseman Aaron Ekblad and goaltender Roberto Luongo there.

All 30 teams have at least one representative.
