Following up on its announcement  last week of the league's first-ever All-Star Game in December, the CWHL named its All-Stars in a press release Thursday, and the list includes some familiar names if you paid attention to the Olympics in February. Scroll further down to see who's on it, or click on the link.

The game will be held Dec. 13 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. And get this: it's free. Yep, you can RSVP for a free ticket to see the best players a pro women's hockey league has to offer, including some Olympians, for free. Get on that.

Fans will get to vote for team captains starting Nov. 29. The captains will then pick their first five teammates apiece in a draft on Dec. 12, and the rest of the players will be picked for each team via a random stick pull. Aww, yeah, Mystery, Alaska-style. Kind of.
