Canadiens goaltender Carey Price, forwards Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers, and defenseman P.K. Subban of the Nashville Predators topped their respective divisions in fan votes in the 2017 NHL All-Star Fan Vote to earn the first spots and captaincy in the 2017 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 29.

Price and Crosby captured the most votes in the Atlantic Division and Metropolitan Division, respectively, while Subban led the Central Division and McDavid topped the Pacific Division.

Tuesday's announcement sends the 29-year-old netminder to his fifth-career NHL All-Star Game, and his first under the NHL's new 3-on-3 format.

Through 27 games this season, Price boasts a 18-5-4 record, with a 2.07 goals-against average and .930 save percentage.

The 2017 Honda NHL All-Star Game will showcase the NHL's most talented star players from each division. The All-Star Tournament will feature three 20-minute games, with star players from each Division making up the four All-Star teams: Pacific, Central, Atlantic, and Metropolitan. Each team will be made up of 11 players from each Division: six forwards, three defensemen and two goaltenders.
