Three Rangers players are on the ballot for fan selection to be part of the 2011 NHL All-Star Game at Raleigh, N.C.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who played in the last NHL All-Star Game in 2009, is in the Rangers' ballot delegation for a fourth straight season. Joining him there are  two-time All-Star Marian Gaborik at forward and first-time All-Star candidate Marc Staal on defense.

A change in the All-Star Game format this season lowered the number of players on the ballot from any given team. In past years, players were nominated for teams representing the Eastern and Western Conferences. This year, all players will be selected from the same pool, and team captains will choose their own rosters. Thus, there can be players from the same team on opposite sides of the All-Star ice, depending on whom the designated captains select.

Worldwide All-Star balloting opened on Nov. 15, as fans have an opportunity to vote for their top six All-Stars.  For the fourth straight All-Star Game, the balloting process is entirely digital, offering fans a chance to vote as often as they like via mobile devices, online at NHL.com, or through the NHL's Facebook page. This marks the first year that All-Star balloting will be held on a social-networking platform.

Voting will continue through Jan. 3, 2011, as fans can select up to three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender. The three forwards, two defensemen and goalie with the most votes will be named first NHL All-Stars.

The rest of the players in the pool for the captains' selections will be chosen by the NHL. All NHL teams will have at least one representative in the game, meaning that any number of Rangers could be playing in the All-Star Game even if they don't get there through fan balloting.

The 2011 NHL All-Star Game, presented by Discover, will mark the first time Carolina has hosted NHL All-Star activities.  The League’s mid-season spectacular will take place Saturday, January 29 and Sunday, January 30 and will include Honda NHL SuperSkills and the 58th NHL All-Star Game presented by Discover at RBC Center.  Live television coverage of both nights will be provided by VERSUS in the U.S. and CBC and RDS in Canada.  The Honda NHL SuperSkills will begin at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, and the 2011 NHL All-Star Game will start at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Following are the 100 players named to the ballot in the 2011 NHL All-Star Fan Balloting:
