Capitals' Alex Ovechkin, Mike Green named to NHL All-Star Game roster

Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and defenseman Mike Green have been named to the NHL's All-Star Game roster, which was just released by the league.

It will be Ovechkin's fourth All-Star Game appearance and Green's first.

Here's the complete roster for the game, to be played Jan. 30 in Raleigh.

And here's more from the NHL on the format for teams:

The 42 All-Stars will decide amongst themselves which two players deserve the honor of being captains and which four will be alternate captains at All-Star Weekend. The captains and alternates will be unveiled in approximately two weeks, with the only rule being that each team must have two forwards and one defenseman wearing letters. The team names then will be taken from the last names of the two captains.
The captains, along with their alternates, have the responsibility of choosing sides in the NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft powered by Cisco, which is scheduled for Jan. 28 and will be televised live on TSN and VERSUS from NHL Fan Fair at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Do you agree with the Caps players selected?
