As expected, Claude Giroux was named as the lone Philadelphia Flyers representative to the 2016 NHL All-Star Game on Wednesday. He will suit up for the Metropolitan Division team at the game in Nashville on January 31, and at the Skills Competition the night prior.
Here are the full rosters. All teams have at least one representative.

Giroux will be playing in his fourth All-Star Game. Alex Ovechkin is the captain of the Metropolitan Division team, as voted by fans, and Washington coach Barry Trotz is the coach of the team because his team currently leads the division.
The Game is a 3-on-3 tournament this year. The Metropolitan team will take on the Atlantic team in a 20-minute semifinal, and the winner will play the winner of the Central vs. Pacific semifinal.
