2022 NHL All-Star Game SBG Odds Overview

On this occasion, the NHL All-Star Game is comprised of four teams from each of the NHL’s divisions. The winners of the first two games will then meet for the All-Star Game championship. In sum, each online wagering match will have two halves of ten minutes, each with a three-on-three format. The Players were determined by fan voting. Coaches were selected by the highest team winning percentage in the standings on January 10.

At the onset, the NHL All-Star game was founded in tragedy. Its foundation can be attributed to a career-ending injury to Toronto Maple Leafs’ star Ace Bailey. Bailey was seriously injured when his head hit the ice on a retaliation hit by Eddie Shore of the Boston Bruins. As a result, a benefit game of the NHL’s best players was held on February 14, 1934.

The National Hockey League All-Star Game has gone through several formats through the years. Concurrently the system of teams from each of the four divisions has proven to be a popular change. Following calls for the game to end due to its lack of competitive passion, it has enjoyed a renaissance.

Atlantic Division

Namely, Andrew Brunette of the Florida Panthers is the head coach of the Atlantic Division. Toronto Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews and goaltender Jack Campbell headline the Atlantic Division roster. Also, the Atlantic Division boasts the best goaltender in hockey, Andrei Vasilevskiy, of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

Metropolitan Division

Rod Brind’Amour of the Carolina Hurricanes is the Metropolitan Division head coach. To show, the Metropolitan Division is headlined by the biggest NHL betting odds name in hockey, Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin. Ovechkin is continuing his quest to surpass Wayne Gretzky as the NHL’s all-time leading goal scorer.

Central Division

Jared Bednar of the Colorado Avalanche is the head coach of the Central Division.
In turn, veteran Dallas Stars forward Joe Pavelski is the top player on the Central Division team. Pavelski continues to play at an elite level after making his name with the San Jose Sharks.

Peter DeBoer, head coach of the hometown of Vegas Golden Knights, is the head coach of the Pacific Division. Of course, Connor McDavid is the marquee man of the Pacific Division. Everyone acknowledges the Edmonton Oilers center as the best player in the game. Additionally, Oilers center Leon Draisaitl is rated the second-best player in the NHL.
