The Boston Bruins will send multiple players to the NHL All-Star Game for the first time since 2012.

Bruins forward Brad Marchand and goaltender Tuukka Rask were named to the 2017 NHL All-Star team on Tuesday, marking the first All-Star selection for both players.

Marchand is on pace for another excellent season, with a team-high 35 points through 43 games on 13 goals and 22 assists. The 28-year-old winger scored a career-high 37 goals last season while finishing with 60 points.

Rask, meanwhile, ranks third in the NHL with a 1.93 goals against average and is tied for the league lead with five shutouts. The 29-year-old also has 20 wins in 32 games, tied for third-most in the NHL.

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron was Boston’s only All-Star representative in 2015 and 2016, and the All-Star Game wasn’t held in 2013 or 2014. The B’s sent three players to the 2012 All-Star Game: Zdeno Chara, Tyler Seguin and Tim Thomas.

The complete 2017 NHL All-Star roster, featuring 10 players each from the league’s four divisions, is below. The four teams will compete in two semifinal matchups of 3-on-3 action on Jan. 29 before a championship game decides the winner.
