All-Star alternate captains named
Staal and Lidstrom were selected as captains for the teams that bear their names in the new format for the game that will be played in Raleigh, N.C., on Jan. 30. The remaining All-Stars will be divided up in a draft Friday.
The four alternate captains were chosen by the league and the union after they received suggestions from the All-Stars.
