2012 NHL All-Star Draft: Seven Total Rangers, Islanders And Devils Players Available

For the second consecutive year, the NHL will turn to a Fantasy Player Draft to determine the split of the All-Star Game rosters, and the selections will be handled by team captains Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins and Daniel Alfreddson of the host city Ottawa Senators.

The two players will alternate selections Thursday night, choosing between the 38 designated All Stars. Chara and Alfreddson were selected via fan and NHL league office voting.

Rangers Ccoach John Tortorella will coach Team Alfreddson, and three of his players will be available for picking: goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, defenseman Dan Girardi and forward Marian Gaborik. The Rangers lead the Eastern Conference with 66 points, and trail the Red Wings by just one point in the President's Cup race. Impressive young left wing Carl Hagelin was one of 12 NHL rookies selected to be split up into two groups to round out the All Star rosters.

Islanders center John Tavares will be making his first NHL All-Star appearance, and he enters the action with a team-best 49 points.

The Devils will not be sending any veteran players to the All Star game, but two of their star youngsters, center Adam Henrique and defenseman Adam Larsson, were tabbed as rookie participants.

The game will be played at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon, and can be seen on NBC Sports.
