Edmonton Oilers forwards Ales Hemsky and Jordan Eberle will miss the All-Star Game due to injuries.

Hemsky, second on the team with 29 points in 32 games, has missed the last two games due to a concussion. Eberle, who was one of 12 rookies invited to All-Star Weekend and was scheduled to participate in the Honday SuperSkills competition, has missed the last 10 games with an ankle injury. The 22nd pick of the 2008 Entry Draft has 23 points in 37 games.

Rookie forward Taylor Hall, the first pick of the 2010 Entry Draft, looks to be the club's sole representative at All-Star Weekend. Hall, like Eberle, is scheduled to take part in the skills contest.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
