The 60th National Hockey League All-Star Game is an exhibition ice hockey game scheduled for January 25, 2015. The game is set to be held in Columbus, Ohio for the first time, at Nationwide Arena, home of the Columbus Blue Jackets. The team captains were chosen by NHL Hockey Operations: Nick Foligno of the All-Star game hosting Blue Jackets will serve as captain for the home team and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks will serve for the away team.

Columbus was originally scheduled to host the All-Star game on January 27, 2013.[1] The game was postponed two years, first because of the 2012–13 NHL lockout[2] and then due to the league's participation in the 2014 Winter Olympics tournament.

On January 1, 2015, six players were voted into the All-Star Game over seven weeks of online voting. Five Chicago Blackhawks players were voted in: forwards Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, and goalie Corey Crawford. The only player voted in as a member of a different team was forward Zemgus Girgensons of the Buffalo Sabres,[3] who was the most voted overall due to a campaign in his native Latvia.[4]

Peter Laviolette of the Nashville Predators and Darryl Sutter of the Los Angeles Kings were named coaches for the game on January 9, 2015.[5] On January 14, 2015, the league announced the captains for the game will be Jonathan Toews and Nick Foligno. Being a player for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Foligno's team will be the home team. Drew Doughty and Patrick Kane have been named assistant captains for Team Foligno while Ryan Getzlaf and Rick Nash will serve the same role for Team Toews.[6]

A draft to select teams was held two days prior to the game, on January 23, 2015. The captains and assistant captains from each team sat together and selected players throughout 18 round. In past years, the last player picked would receive a new car; during this draft, the final two picks Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Filip Forsberg were voted onto their teams by online fan voting and as a result, both players received 2015 Honda Accords. The rules during the draft required all goaltenders to have been selected by the end of the 10th round and all defensemen by the end of the 15th.[7]
