The 2012 NHL All-Star game is in it's second year of having a fantasy draft instead of dividing the players up by conference or the North America vs. the World concept the league ran for a few seasons. The fantasy draft has created more buzz and excitement to the game since players are not known until the three days before the game.
The Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn was selected with the second to last pick by Team Chara which means that he missed out on being Mr. Irrelevant which would have given him a 2013 Honda Crosstour. That honor went to Logan Couture of the San Jose Sharks.
Date, time: Sunday, Jan. 29, 4 p.m. ET
