Report: Active players to be named to 'Greatest 100' list expected to be All-Stars

When the NHL reveals the remaining names on the 100 Greatest Players list at the All-Star Game in Los Angeles later in January, the league plans to have the active players included represent All-Star rosters, Nick Kypreos reported on Hockey Night in Canada's "Headlines" segment Saturday.

Kypreos added that six active players are expected to be included on the list compiled to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the NHL.

Sidney Crosby was already named Metropolitan Division captain, but this means we should likely expect Alex Ovechkin to participate in the three-on-three tournament, too.

Kypreos did mention an important caveat, indicating that Jaromir Jagr - an obvious shoe-in for selection - may not necessarily have to skate, but would still be expected in Los Angeles.

Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Drew Doughty, Duncan Keith, and Zdeno Chara were the other possible names mentioned by the Hockey Night in Canada panel.
