KHL All Star Rosters

The KHL All Star Game will be played in Ufa, Russia on January 22nd.  It is to be played in a similar format to the NHL game where each of the four divisions has an 11 man roster.  There will be ten players (one goalie, two or three defencemen and six or seven forwards) who are on the current roster.  Additionally each team will get one player from the MHL All Star Game added to their roster.  This is the Russian junior league.  Those players are expected to be announced after the MHL All Star Game which will be played in Ufa on January 15th.  Though the MHL players have not yet been announced, it is likely they are known to the all star team selections as teams left a spot open for either a forward or defenceman to make room for the player.

Here are the rosters for the four KHL divisions:

Bobrov Division

Igor Shestyorkin SKA St Petersburg

Defencemen

Chay Genoway Jokerit Helsinki
Matt Gilroy Spartak Moscow
Slava Voynov SKA St Petersburg

Nigel Dawes Barys Astana
Kirill Kaprizov Salavat Yulaev Ufa
Linus Omark Salavat Yulaev Ufa
Chad Rau Kunlun Red Star
Maxim Shalunov Sibir Novosibirsk
Vladimir Sobotka Avangard Omsk

Many of these players are familiar names to hockey fans as they have appeared in the NHL or in international play in the past.  Sergei Mozyakin is an interesting player as he has been named to all nine KHL All Star Games in league history.  Alexander Radulov had also been named to all of the KHL All Star Games in history until this year.  He will not make this year's game because he is playing for the Montreal Canadiens of the NHL and not in the KHL.
