The pair of defensemen are Norris Trophy winner Roman Josi of the Nashville Predators and finalist John Carlson of the Washington Capitals. The goaltender is Vezina Trophy winner Connor Hellebuyck of the Winnipeg Jets.

The Second Team consists of Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask, adding to his First Team berth in 2013-14, and left wing Brad Marchand, receiving his third career postseason All-Star nod (1 First Team, 2 Second Team). Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman and right wing Nikita Kucherov, both of whom are postseason All-Stars for the fourth time. Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon, voted to the Second Team for the second time, and defenseman Alex Pietrangelo of the St. Louis Blues, who landed a Second Team berth for the third time.
