Notes[edit | edit source]

Borje Salming made history by becoming the first European born and bred player to participate in an NHL All-Star game (Stan Mikita and Ivan Boldirev were also born in Europe but did not start to play hockey before moving to Canada at an early age). From 1976 onwards, every NHL All-Star game to date has featured at least one European player.
