Team Foligno captain Nick Foligno didn't have to look far for his first pick of the NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft.

Blue Jackets All-Star forward Ryan Johansen, his line mate and teammate in Columbus, was his first pick in the draft and will be part of the home team in Sunday's 60th Honda NHL All-Star Game at Nationwide Arena. Johansen, who broke out last season with 33 goals as a 21-year-old in his third NHL season, is on a point-per-game pace in 2014-15 and has a firm grasp on the No. 1 center spot on a young, up-and-coming Blue Jackets team.

Teammates on the Blue Jackets, and now, teammates on the home team (wearing black sweaters) in the Honda NHL All-Star Game. Not a bad deal.
