Get Your Game On

 
We know who the captains are (Nicklas Lidstrom and Eric Staal if you have forgotten) but we were all left wondering who the alternates would be.  Today we found out.

Eric Staal will be accompanied in the draft by his alternates Ryan Kesler (VAN) and Mike Green (WSH).  Nick Lidstrom will have Patrick Kane (CHI) and Martin St-Louis (TBL) as his alternates.

If you haven't heard about this Daniel Briere (PHI) will be going to Raleigh come the All-Star weekend in replacement of Jarome Iginla (CGY).  If you're like me, this might be a little dampening (Iginla has this contagious smile and a cherry personality!) but it's really great to see that Briere gets his very deserving place on the roster.

Iginla has dropped out of participating in the All-Star weekend after voicing concerns about his grandmother's health.

NHL release

This just in: Jordan Eberle (EDM) may also miss the All-Stars to continue to rehab his injured ankle.  The Edmonton Oilers twitter has confirmed this. Ales Hemsky (EDM) may not go either because of a concussion symptoms.  The Oilers will make a formal announcement later on.
