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:
Igor Shestyorkin SKA St Petersburg
Chay Genoway Jokerit Helsinki
Matt Gilroy Spartak Moscow
Slava Voynov SKA St Petersburg
Jonathan Cheechoo HC Slovan Bratislava
Pavel Datsyuk SKA St Petersburg
Matt Ellison Dynamo Minsk
Ilya Kovalchuk SKA St Petersburg
Francis Pare Medvescak Zagreb
Ryan Stoa Spartak Moscow
Ilya Sorokin CSKA Moscow
Oscar Fantenberg HC Sochi
Igor Ozhiganov CSKA Moscow
Mat Robinson Dynamo Moscow
Maxim Afinogenov Vityaz Podolsk
Vladimir Goluzin Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod
Dmitri Kagarlitsky Severstal Cherepovets
Brandon Kozun Lokomotiv Yaroslavl
Valeri Nichushkin CSKA Moscow
Ivan Telegin CSKA Moscow
Pavel Francouz Traktor Chelyabinsk
Kirill Koltsov Traktor Chelyabinsk
Chris Lee Metallurg Magnitogorsk
Nikita Filatov Lada Togliatti
Anatoli Golyshev Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg
Jan Kovar Metallurg Magnitogorsk
Sergei Mozyakin Metallurg Magnitogorsk
Dan Sexton Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk
Vladimir Tkachyov Ak Bars Kazan
Danis Zaripov Metallurg Magnitogorsk
Igor Bobkov Admiral Vladivostok
Zakhar Arzamastsev Salavat Yulaev Ufa
Jan Kolar Amur Khabarovsk
Evgeny Medvedev Avangard Omsk
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.
