Edmonton's Taylor Hall and San Jose's Logan Couture were chosen as captains for the 12 rookies who will participate in the Honda SuperSkills competition Saturday during NHL All-Star Weekend, the League announced Friday.

Hall and Couture will take part in a coin flip Friday night during the 2011 All-Star Player Fantasy Draft powered by Cisco. The winner will then get to choose which team, Team Lidstrom or Team Staal, his group of six rookies will join for the competition the following night.

The other five members of Hall's group include Derek Stepan of the New York Rangers, Colorado's Kevin Shattenkirk, Florida's Evgeny Dadonov, Anaheim's Cam Fowler and Oliver Ekman-Larsson of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Couture's group includes Michael Grabner of the New York Islanders, Carolina's Jamie McBain, Montreal's P.K. Subban, Boston's Tyler Seguin and Buffalo's Tyler Ennis.

Couture leads all NHL rookies with 22 goals. Hall, the No. 1 pick in the 2010 Entry Draft, is third in goals (16) and points (31) behind Couture and Carolina's Jeff Skinner, who has been promoted to join the veterans in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover as an injury replacement.
Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.

— Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber after winning the AMP NHL Hardest Shot event at the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition
