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 have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
