Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby was selected to participate in the NHL All-Star Game, joining teammate Alex Ovechkin, who was named captain of the Metropolitan Division on Jan. 3, and coach Barry Trotz, who was named head coach for the Metropolitan Division on Sunday. The game will be played at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla., on Jan. 28. This season marks Ovechkin's franchise-record ninth selection to the game (2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18) and the third-straight for Holtby, which is also a franchise record for goaltenders. Trotz will coach his second All-Star Game since joining Washington (2015-16). Additionally, Trotz worked as an assistant coach at the 2007 All-Star Game in Dallas. Capitals head equipment manager Brock Myles was named the Metropolitan equipment manager.
