Thanks to a lockout and a Winter Olympics, it's been three years since the NHL last played an All-Star Game, but today it's back with a vengeance as hockey's best players vie in the 60th event at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
This year's game continues the fantasy draft format that debuted in 2011, in which two team captains (as voted by participating players) draft players for their team. The two captains are Jonathon Toews of the Chicago Black Hawks and Nick Foligno of the Columbus Blue Jackets and you can see their fantasy draft picks here at NHL.com.
