Jamie Benn Selected to Play in All-Star Game

by Staff Writer / Dallas Stars

The National Hockey League announced today that Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn has been named as one of 42 players selected to participate in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game and Weekend, to be held at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa.


The 42 All-Stars will play in the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL® All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 29 at Scotiabank Place (3 p.m., CT, NBCSN). The 12 NHL Rookies, along with the 42 All-Stars, will participate in the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition TM on Saturday, Jan. 28 at Scotiabank Place (6 p.m., CT, NBCSN).

Benn, 22, will be making his first NHL All-Star Game appearance. He has skated in each of Dallas’ 41 games and leads the team in scoring with 13 goals and 29 assists totaling 42 points. He also leads the club with 13 multi-point games and 117 shots on goal. Earlier this season, the Victoria, BC native became the only player in Dallas Stars history to register his 100th career NHL point before his 23rd birthday (22 years, 89 days old).

Following the overwhelming success of its debut at last year's All-Star Weekend in Raleigh, the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft TM will be held on Thursday, Jan. 26 to divide the All-Stars and Rookies into two teams. Captains for each team will be announced next week.
