The Oilers forwards are tied for the League lead in scoring with 53 points apiece. Draisaitl is the NHL's top goal-scorer with 26 while McDavid has 19 tallies and 34 helpers.

McDavid (2021) and Draisaitl (2020) have won the last two Hart Memorial Trophy awards as the League's most valuable player, and the Feb. 4-5 festivities in Vegas will be the third consecutive All-Star Weekend for the Oilers duo as they attended 2020 in St. Louis and 2019 in San Jose.

Darnell Nurse is Edmonton's "Last Men In" nominee and fans can vote for the defenceman to join McDavid and Draisaitl on Team Pacific until Monday, Jan. 17 at NHL.com/Vote.
