Eric Staal will represent Wild at NHL All-Star Game”

The league on Wednesday announced rosters for the January 28 event at Amalie Arena in Tampa (3:30 p.m., NBC).

Native Minnesotans named to the All-Star Game include rookie winger Brock Boeser of Vancouver and Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound defenseman was named a Second-Team NHL All-Star following both the 2011-12 and 2013-14 seasons. In 2016-17, his first in Minnesota, Staal racked up 28 goals and 65 points in a rebound performance after a down showing the season before. Pietrangelo is also one of just seven defensemen averaging more than three-and-a-half minutes of power-play time and two minutes of shorthanded time per game. Last year, he scored two goals and was +4 in two games for the Metropolitan Division team. Zach Parise, Nino Niederreiter, Mikael Granlund and Jared Spurgeon have missed time due to injury; Staal has been on the ice for every game this season, keeping the team afloat while others get healthy. The league will once again use the 3-on-3 tournament format that they used previous year.
