The All-Star Weekend is a massive event on the NHL calendar. There are going to be tons of elite players gathered in Toronto to put on a show for the fans.

One player from each team has been selected and then there was an additional fan vote to add in more All-Stars.

The captains, Connor McDavid, Nathan MacKinnon, Auston Matthews, and the Hughes brothers are all going to select teams from the pools of players.

There are a few players selected, however, that may finish the season in a different sweater than the one that they wear during the All-Star weekend.

These are the 3 players that made it to the event but could be on a new team in no time:

Elias Lindholm could be a member of a new team before the year is over

Elias Lindholm has been a great player for the Calgary Flames over the years. Now, he is about to see his contract expire when the season is over.

Calgary is not looking like a team that is going to get into the playoffs. They have a chance but they would have to finish strong to end this season. That also includes showing some life before the NHL Trade Deadline approaches.

If they are not close to a playoff spot by then, becoming sellers might be their reality. Lindholm is their top asset that could be moved. He is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this upcoming season.

A lot of teams would like to add a player like him for their playoff run if he became available. Entering play on Tuesday, he has 8 goals and 22 assists for 30 points in 46 games played. You might even see those totals take a jump if he were on a better offensive team.

Lindholm is Calgary's All-Star representative but he could be moved if the rest of the season turns them into sellers.
