Florida Panthers right winger Jaromir Jagr will serve as Captain for the Atlantic Division while the Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane will do the honors for the Central Division. New York Islanders center John Tavares will lead the Metropolitan Division and finally John Scott of the Montreal Canadiens will captain the Pacific Division, which caused a lot of controversy because after voting started, Arizona traded him to Montreal and he is now at the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate in Newfoundland, so he’s not even an active NHL player at the moment! But the fans voted and got the final say. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE NHL ALL-STAR GAME.
