Eric Staal and Nicklas Lidstrom selected as NHL All-Star captains
Staal and Lidstrom will construct their teams during a live draft on Jan. 28, two days before the NHL All-Star game in Raleigh, N.C. Yet-to-be-determined alternate captains will assist in the decision-making process.
Under this new format, the Ducks' two all-stars -- right wing Corey Perry and goalie Jonas Hiller -- could end up on opposite teams. Center Anze Kopitar will be the sole representative from the Kings.
