Chara, Seguin & Thomas are All-Stars
BOSTON, MA – Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and forward Tyler Seguin will join goaltender Tim Thomas and the Bruins coaching staff at the upcoming 2012 NHL All-Star game in Ottawa, ON, the NHL announced today.

Chara leads all Bruins defensemen in almost every offensive category, including goals (7), assists (18), points (25), time on ice (24:29), plus/minus (+27), power play goals (5) and shots (110). He currently ranks seventh amongst all NHL defensemen in points, leads all defensemen in plus/minus and is tied for the league lead in power play goals.

A four-time Hardest Shot king, Chara has won the last four Hardest Shot competitions at the NHL All-Star Skills Competitions. Last year, he broke his own Hardest Shot record with a 105.9 MPH blast in Raleigh, NC. Chara recorded triple-digit shots of 100.4 MPH in 2007, 103.1 MPH in 2008, and 105.4 MPH in 2009 to win those respective competitions.

Seguin participated in last year’s All-Star festivities as a rookie. He is Boston’s leading scorer this season with 17 goals and 21 assists for 38 points. He also leads the NHL in plus/minus with a +33 rating.

Last week, fan voting determined the first six players for the January 29 game to be held at Scotiabank Place. Thomas earned the highest vote total among all goaltenders. He has been the winning goaltender during the last three All-Star games, which ties a NHL record.

By virtue of winning the Stanley Cup last season, the Bruins coaching staff of Claude Julien and assistants Doug Houda, Geoff Ward and Doug Jarvis will be behind the bench.

The remaining pool of players is comprised of 36 more veterans and 12 rookies, who will be selected in a Fantasy Draft format and participate in the Honda SuperSkills competition at All-Star Weekend. Including rookies, each All-Star team will have a total of 27 players. The full player pool and schedule information is listed below:
