Darnell Nurse of the Edmonton Oilers is among 32 players on the ballot in the 2022 NHL All-Star Last Men In fan vote for the 2022 Honda NHL All-Star Game at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Feb. 5 (3 p.m. ET; ABC, SN, TVAS).
Nurse, a defenseman, has yet to play in an NHL All-Star Game but has a chance to join teammates Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl on the Pacific Division team for the Honda NHL All-Star Weekend. Nurse is tied for the second in the NHL with Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski in time on ice per game (26:34) and has scored 14 points (two goals, 12 assists) in 27 games.
The player with the most votes from each of the four divisions will be added to the All-Star Game rosters that were announced Thursday. Voting for the Last Men In opened Thursday and closes Monday at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Fans can vote at NHL.com/lastmenin, NHL.com/vote or on a mobile interactive ballot on the NHL app.
Each of the 32 NHL teams was represented with one player on the ballot.
Fans will be permitted to select as few as one player and a maximum of four players per ballot. No fan will be permitted to cast more than 10 ballots during a 24-hour period.
There are four players on the ballot who were Last Men In candidates when the competition last was held in 2020: Florida Panthers forward Aleksander Barkov, Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos, New York Rangers forward Mika Zibanejad and Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty.
Stamkos last played in the All-Star Game in 2019, his sixth appearance.
