All-Star Game Reps

The NHL All-Star Game has been a mid-season affair since the Canucks joined the NHL in 1970 (earlier it had taken place during the pre-season). Most seasons, there has been a rule that each NHL team had to have at least one representative at the game. In many seasons, this is the only way Canucks got to play in the game. Here are the Canucks that have had the honour of playing in the NHL All-Star Game.
