NHL ALL-STAR DRAFT REMINDER


Just as a friendly reminder, the 2012 All-Star Fantasy Draft is set to begin tonight at 5 PM PST. The Draft will be televised on TSN and RDS in Canada and NBC Sports Network in the United States on Thursday, Jan. 26 at 8 p.m., ET, from the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau-Ottawa, Quebec.

 The rules of the draft are as follows:

2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft™ Format

A coin toss will decide first pick, with Alfredsson and Chara, joined by their assistant captains, alternately drafting the 38 remaining All-Stars through 19 rounds. Each team will consist of three goaltenders, six defensemen and 12 forwards. To ensure that the final draft picks are true selections and not simply predetermined due to position requirements, each team’s three goalies must be picked by the end of Round 10 and each team’s six defensemen must be picked by the conclusion of Round 15.

The 12 Rookies participating in the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition will be divided by the National Hockey League into two groups of six. At the completion of the 15th round of the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft, one NHL Rookie will be selected to choose which All-Star team his group will join for the skills competition. The NHL Foundation and the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund each will donate $10,000 on behalf of the All-Star selected with the final pick of the Draft to the grassroots hockey program of his choice.

The teams will compete in the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition™, at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m., ET, and the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL® All-Star Game, at Scotiabank Place on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 4 p.m., ET. Live television coverage of both events will be provided by CBC and RDS in Canada and NBC Sports Network in the United States.
