2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

NHL.com takes its shot at drafting the All-Stars

NHL.com

The 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft is set for Thursday in Ottawa (8 p.m. ET, NBCSP), but in the meantime, how about a mock fantasy draft to tide you over?

NHL.com's Dan Rosen played the role of Team Alfredsson with Henrik Lundqvist as an assistant captain, while Dave Lozo represented Team Chara with Joffrey Lupul as that team's assistant captain.

They drafted the teams the way they felt they should be chosen. They did not try to guess how Alfredsson and Chara would go about their duties.

Chara, Julien to stay together at All-Star Game

Friday, 01.20.2012 / 3:00 PM / 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Zdeno Chara will see some familiar faces when he skates to bench at the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 29.

Chara, one of the team captains for the All-Star Game, will be coached by his regular Boston Bruins coaching staff -- head coach Claude Julien, and assistants Doug Houda, Doug Jarvis and Geoff Ward.

Julien and his staff were rewarded with the All-Star coaching spot thanks to their Stanley Cup win last spring.

Team Alfredsson, captained by Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson, will be guided by John Tortorella of the New York Rangers and Todd McLellan of the San Jose Sharks.

All-Star captaincy selection a big honor for Chara

Thursday, 01.19.2012 / 3:02 PM / 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

"To be a captain on your team and then you get selected to the All-Star Game, and then the players vote you as captain of the All-Star team, it's another honor on top of that." -- Zdeno Chara

NEWARK, N.J. -- Unlike his counterpart and former teammate Daniel Alfredsson, Zdeno Chara will not reveal who he will take or wants to take with his first selection in the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft one week from Thursday.
 
"Nope," Chara said without hesitation Thursday morning. "We'll see how it goes and what the picks are going to be like."
 
The Bruins' Chara and Ottawa's Alfredsson were both selected as captains for the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game, which will be played Jan. 29 at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa. Alfredsson has already said he'd pick Senators' teammate Erik Karlsson at the first opportunity. That means Chara will have the chance to select either Bruins goalie Tim Thomas or right wing Tyler Seguin with his first pick.

Preds' Smith has made rapid journey to stardom

Wednesday, 01.18.2012 / 6:29 PM / 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

For Craig Smith, his 'Welcome to the NHL moment' wasn't scoring his first NHL goal in Nashville's season-opening victory on Oct. 7.

No, for Smith, it was far more behind the scenes, a moment perhaps caught by just a few of his teammates and only the most observant fans.

"It was when we played the Anaheim Ducks later that month," Smith told NHL.com. "Who is that No. 15? Oh, yeah, Ryan Getzlaf. He was yelling at me and I thought to myself, 'Wow, this is pretty cool.' I agitated Ryan Getzlaf to the point that he's looking and yelling at me. I must have really done something. That was a pretty cool moment."

Fact is, Smith is much more than an agitator. He's currently among the top five forwards on the team in scoring (26 points) and is a proven sniper on the power play (five power-play goals). He also doesn't shy away from shooting the puck, blasting off 116 shots, the third-highest total on the team.

He'll also be joining teammates Shea Weber and Ryan Suter during All-Star Weekend in Ottawa later this month. Smith was one of 12 first-year players named to the skills competition to be held Jan. 28 at Scotiabank Place.

The 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game will be a battle between the hometown hero and the defending Stanley Cup champion.

They will take turns picking their All-Star teams at the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft on Jan. 26. And it will be Alfredsson and Chara wearing C's on their jerseys at the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Jan. 28 and the All-Star Game on Jan. 29.

Team Alfredsson will wear the white Reebok NHL All-Star jerseys, helmets and socks, with red trim throughout and red gloves and pants. Team Chara will wear the dark blue jerseys with royal blue trim, navy blue helmets, gloves and pants and navy blue socks.

Tavares excited about first All-Star selection

Thursday, 01.12.2012 / 8:17 PM / 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- John Tavares has been the best player on the ice in many of the New York Islanders' first 41 games of the season -- for either team.

So it really was no surprise that Tavares learned Thursday that he will be the Isles' lone representative at the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game, to be played Jan. 29 at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa.

It's likely that this will be the first of many All-Star appearances for Tavares, who leads the Islanders with 39 points (14 goals, 25 assists) entering Thursday's action.

All-Star nods further validate Preds' top pairing

Thursday, 01.12.2012 / 4:21 PM / 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Throughout the season, opponents have casually commented that the Predators have the League's top defense pair in Shea Weber and Ryan Suter.

On Thursday that mythical honor perhaps gained a bit more weight when both players were named to the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game. Weber will play in his third game while Suter, a seven-year veteran selected seventh in the 2003 Entry Draft, is a first-time All-Star.

Perry All-Star bound after Selanne suggestion

Thursday, 01.12.2012 / 4:15 PM / 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

Corey Perry
Right Wing - ANA
GOALS: 18 | ASST: 17 | PTS: 35
SOG: 146 | +/-: -11
CALGARY -- There's no doubting the All-Star skills of Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne.

There's no questioning the caliber of his character, either.

In the midst of another age-defying season, the 41-year-old Selanne earned the opportunity to make his 11th career All-Star Game appearance but instead lobbied that teammate Corey Perry was much more deserving of the nomination to represent the Anaheim Ducks for the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game Jan. 29 at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa.

After winning the Hart and Rocket Richard trophies last season, Perry has 18 goals and 35 points this season, an effort which Selanne believed earned Perry a trip to Ottawa.
