Thrashers Tobias Enstrom And Dustin Byfuglien Chosen For All Star Game

Well, kind of. They’re two of the thirty six players and twelve rookies that the all star game captains will have to choose from to round out their rosters. Both players are putting up outstanding numbers so far this year, with Dustin Byfuglien leading NHL defensemen with 16 goals and 41 points, and Tobias Enstrom ranking ninth in the league (and is tied for first with Kris Letang and Niklas Lidstrom for first among defensemen).

The rosters will be picked by the two team captains on January 28th, and the game is Saturday, January 29th in Raleigh. Both events are televised on Versus.
