ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Wild forward Martin Havlat has been chosen for this weekend's All-Star game.

Havlat's addition was announced Tuesday by the league for Sunday's game in Raleigh, N.C.

He's one of three forwards picked as injury replacements for Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Ales Hemsky.

This will be the 29-year-old Havlat's second All-Star appearance. He went in 2007 while with the Chicago Blackhawks.

After a slow first season, Havlat has had a much stronger second season with Minnesota. He has 13 goals in 48 games and leads the team with 30 assists. He'll join defenseman Brent Burns as Wild representatives this weekend.

This is the second time in the Wild's 10-year history they'll send two players to an All-Star game. Filip Kuba and Dwayne Roloson each went in 2004.
