The NHL also announced today that rookie center Phil Kessel was named to the Eastern Conference roster for the NHL YoungStars Game presented by Upper Deck, on Tuesday, January 23 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas (7:30 p.m. ET, VERSUS, NHL Radio).

Chara, who was signed by the Bruins as a free agent on July 1, 2006, has played in 40 games for Boston this year, scoring eight goals and tallying 18 assists. This is his second appearance in an NHL All-Star game, as he was also on the Eastern Conference squad for the 2003 All-Star game.
