The NHL has officially announced the coaches that will participate at the 2022 all-star Game on Feb. 5.
Rod Brind'Amour of the Carolina Hurricanes leading the Metropolitan Division, Andrew Brunette of the Florida Panthers leading the Atlantic Division, Peter DeBoer of the Vegas Golden Knights leading the Pacific Division, and Jared Bednar of the Colorado Avalanche of the leading the Central Divison.
To the shock of no one, these are coaches plucked from the four teams that currently have the highest points-percentage in their respective divisions.
In a fun coincidence, DeBoer will be participating in the all-star festivities as a representative of the home team, with the event being held in Las Vegas this year and DeBoer's Golden Knights currently sitting at the top of the Pacific Division despite dealing with a cavalcade of injuries.
As for the actual rosters, the players who have been selected to represent their teams at the All-Star game, including the four division captains, will be revealed live on ESPN this Thursday during SportsCenter.
