- Andrei Vasilevskiy leads the NHL in all major goaltending categories.
- Nikita Kucherov leads the NHL in goals.
- Steven Stamkos is captain of the Atlantic Division team.
Victor Hedman, who was selected to the All-Star game prior to his injury against the Calgary Flames, led Atlantic Division blueliners in scoring.
