The NHL All-Star Game is a single elimination tournament featuring four teams that have been put together via a fantasy draft. There will be two semi-final games, followed by a final between the two winning semi-finalists.

NHL All-Star Game Picks: Team MacKinnon vs Team McDavid

Team McDavid are backed to book their place in the final of the NHL All-Star Game tournament.

Captain Connor McDavid has drafted a roster featuring two of the top three scorers in the NHL at this time, as well as three top 10 players in when it comes to getting points.

David Pastrnak, Sam Reinhart and McDavid himself have all been piling up the points during the regular season so far.

Reinhart and Pastrnak are top-three in the entire league in goals scored, and just to add to the firepower, Rasmus Dahlin is the top defenseman in the NHL when it comes to goals too.

They may have too much firepower for Team MacKinnon, who have only one top-10 scorer and one player in the top-10 in points.

Selection: Team McDavid @ 1.86

NHL All-Star Game Picks: Team Hughes vs Team Matthews

Team Hughes are tipped to pull off an upset and beat Team Matthews in the second semi-final.

Auston Matthews may be the league’s leading scorer at this time, but he is the only top-10 scorer in his roster following the draft, and he is the only top 10 player in points too.

Quinn Hughes, on the other hand, has a roster loaded with goals and assists, with no less than three players ranked in top 10 in points – himself, Elias Pettersson and Nikita Kucherov.

Pettersson and Kucherov are in the NHL’s top 10 in scoring, while Hughes ranks second in the league in scoring defenseman.

So if Team Hughes can turn this into a sprint, they have a great chance at making it to the final. 

Selection: Team Hughes @ 1.95

NHL All-Star Game Preview & Picks: Winner

The bookies have Team McDavid as a joint favourite to win the All-Star Game, and we make them the team to beat too.

Connor McDavid and celebrity captain Will Arnett have put together a team loaded with goals and creativity.

We expect them to power past Team MacKinnon and then take down tournament underdogs Team Hughes in the final.

Selection: Team McDavid 3.60
