Blues goaltender Brian Elliott will be among a pool of the NHL's best players on Thursday as he waits to be selected to an NHL All-Star team in the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft.

Team captains Daniel Alfredsson (Ottawa Senators) and Zdeno Chara (Boston Bruins) will select the teams that will compete in Saturday's All-Star Skills Competition and Sunday's NHL All-Star Game.

A coin toss will decide the first pick, with Alfredsson and Chara alternately drafting the 38 remaining All-Stars through 19 rounds. Each team will consist of three goaltenders, six defensemen and 12 forwards.

To ensure that the final draft picks are true selections and not simply predetermined due to position requirements, each team's three goalies must be picked by the end of Round 10 and each team's six defensemen must be picked by the conclusion of Round 15.

The Fantasy Draft will be televised live on NBC Sports Network at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28.
