The rosters for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game were announced on Wednesday and among them, two Los Angeles Kings were chosen: Drew Doughty and Jonathan Quick.

In 39 games this season, Doughty has seven goals and 17 assists to go in hand with a plus-16 rating. In fact, of his seven goals, six have come on the power play which goes to show just how intimidating the blueliner when his team is up a man. But as impressive as his offensive abilities have been as of late, last year’s Norris nominee has had an even better season thus far on the defensive side.

This season, Doughty has recorded 52 blocked shots and 62 hits while averaging 27:56 of total ice time. Overall, a solid campaign for Los Angeles’s defensive stalwart.

Jonathan Quick, meanwhile, is having a season to remember in goal. In 32 games, the 29-year-old has gone 22-9-1 with a 2.12 GAA, a .923 save percentage and three shutouts. In fact, as far as the latter is concerned, Quick is now tied with John Vanbiesbrouck and Frank Brimsek for most goose-eggs ever by an American-born netminder with 40.

Also on Wednesday, the NHL revealed this year’s jerseys for the All-Star Game. Here they are courtesy of NHL.com:
