On the one-year anniversary of being named the Detroit Red Wings captain, Dylan Larkin was revealed as an NHL All-Star for the second time in his still young career. And his rookie linemate needs votes from Red Wings fans to also send him to Vegas.

Larkin was named an Atlantic Division All-Star live on ESPN and Sportsnet on Thursday, earning the honor for the first time since his rookie season in 2016. Lucas Raymond was added to the 'Last Men In' ballot, which allow fans to select four players from a list of 32 All-Star caliber players. The highest vote-getters by division then will be added to their respective All-Star rosters.

Voting for the Last Men In now is open at NHL.com/lastmenin and closes on Monday, Jan. 17, at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Larkin is currently on a point-per-game pace with 32 goals (16 goals, 16 assists) in 32 games played this season. Raymond's 30 points leads all NHL rookies, and he currently ranks second in the League in both goals (10) and assists (20).

Larkin was named one of the NHL's "Three Stars" on Dec. 20, and Raymond earned NHL "Rookie of the Month" honors in November.

Larkin was named the Red Wings' 37th captain on Jan. 13, 2021, becoming just the franchise's fourth captain in the previous 34 years, joining current Executive Vice President/General Manager Steve Yzerman (1986-2006), Nicklas Lidstrom (2006-12) and Henrik Zetterberg (2012-18). Lidstrom was named Detroit's Vice President of Hockey Operations on Tuesday, Jan. 11.

The 2022 NHL All-Star Game on Feb. 5 at T-Mobile Arena will consist of a three-game tournament played in a 3-on-3 format, featuring one team from each of the four divisions. The weekend also includes the All-Stars Skills on Feb. 4.
