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.
