Wondering if any of the potential draft picks are nervous about being the last player standing in the 2011 All-Star Player Fantasy Draft powered by Cisco? Maybe there is a player who is confident he will be chosen first?

NHL Network will have a two-hour show leading up the draft starting at 6 p.m. ET on Friday. Deb Placey and Heidi Androl will be interviewing players and their families in the green room to find out what the All-Stars are thinking before the event. Team captains Eric Staal and Nicklas Lidstrom also will discuss their strategy about the forthcoming fantasy draft.

After the draft is complete, NHL Network will have a one-hour recap show starting at 9:30 p.m. The alternate captains (Ryan Kesler, Mike Green, Martin St. Louis and Patrick Kane) will be interviewed afterwards for insight into the picks and to handicap the weekend.

Colorado center Paul Stastny will join Skinner in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover. They were named as replacements for injured Pittsburgh stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

With Skinner now an All-Star and Edmonton rookie Jordan Eberle unable to attend, the League also had to find two rookie replacements to participate in the Honda SuperSkills competition Saturday night. Defensemen P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens and Jamie McBain of the hometown Hurricanes accepted the invitations.

Giroux and Briere ready to be rivals for a day

Wednesday, 01.26.2011 / 10:48 AM / 2011 NHL All-Star Game - Presented by Discover

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

"'m sure if they're on opposite teams it'll be a good scrum for the puck, but they'll be laughing about it afterwards ... maybe right away, actually." -- Flyers teammate Ville Leino

PHILADELPHIA -- Claude Giroux doesn't anticipate a friendly exchange if he and teammate Danny Briere are on opposing teams and forced to fight for a loose puck in a corner during Sunday's 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover.
 
While Giroux certainly would prefer to have Briere on his team, there's no guarantee that will happen. The Philadelphia teammates will learn which club they'll represent Friday when the anticipated NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft powered by Cisco (8 p.m. ET, VS, TSN, RDS) is staged at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Skinner added to All-Star Game roster

Wednesday, 01.26.2011 / 10:05 AM / 2011 NHL All-Star Game - Presented by Discover

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Team Staal's task of getting all the hometown players on the same All-Star team this weekend got harder Wednesday as the NHL announced that Carolina rookie Jeff Skinner now is going to play in the big show Sunday at the RBC Center.

Skinner originally was selected as one of the 12 rookies who will compete in the Honda SuperSkills competition with the regular All-Stars, but with spots opening up due to injuries to Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Ales Hemsky, the NHL gave the city and its fans one more reason to cheer Sunday by adding Skinner to the 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover.

It's not a marketing pick, either -- Skinner earned his way into the big game.

Yandle thrilled to be All-Star addition

Tuesday, 01.25.2011 / 8:24 PM / 2011 NHL All-Star Game - Presented by Discover

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. – When he wasn't selected to the original NHL All-Star roster two weeks ago, Keith Yandle said he wasn't upset about the decision but hinted there might be some Phoenix Coyotes who would use not having a player picked for the game to "use for motivation, that we're being picked on a little bit."

Yandle went out that night and collected a goal and a pair of assists to beat Toronto, and he hasn't stopped scoring since. As he prepared to take a career-best seven-game point streak into Tuesday's game against Edmonton, Yandle learned Tuesday morning that he would replace injured Atlanta defenseman Tobias Enstrom in Carolina for the 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover on Sunday.

"The guys that they did choose at first were great candidates, obviously," said Yandle, who has 10 points (1-9-10) during his scoring streak and 40 points for the season – one shy of his career high. "After they did pick the team, all my teammates came up to me and said that I was pretty deserving, that I should've been there. Just to know that's what your teammates think of you, that's pretty special to me and meant a lot coming from them.

Yandle will get to strut stuff on All-Star stage

Tuesday, 01.25.2011 / 3:10 PM / 2011 NHL All-Star Game - Presented by Discover

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Social media guru Paul Bissonnette of the Phoenix Coyotes can describe defenseman Keith Yandle in one word: Gross.
 
Why?
 
"Because it's amazing how every day you see the plays he's making on the line … it's gross," Bissonnette told NHL.com. "He's still young, he's got game, he's got that swagger. Every day he does things like (Washington Capitals defenseman) Mike Green. If he played on a team where he had more offensive talent -- we have a very defensive-minded team -- it would be fun to watch. If he makes the All-Star team you'll see it, him wheel and deal."
 
Bissonnette got his wish on Tuesday when Yandle was added to the roster of players set to perform at the 2011 NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover on Sunday. It will mark his first All-Star Game appearance.

Broken finger to keep Enstrom out of All-Star Game

Tuesday, 01.25.2011 / 12:48 PM / 2011 NHL All-Star Game - Presented by Discover

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

DULUTH, Ga. -- If hockey fans were expecting to see the League's top-scoring defense pair land on the same All-Star team, they will have to wait.

Thrashers defenseman Tobias Enstrom will not play in what would have been his first NHL All-Star Game, set for Sunday, after breaking a finger on his right hand.

Enstrom got hit by a shot in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Rangers, but still played a team-high 25:56. However, he did not play on Sunday in a 7-1 loss at Tampa Bay -- the first game he had missed in his four-year NHL career. His franchise record of 294 consecutive games was broken that night.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
