2007 All Star Selections

The NHL has announced the full rosters for the 2007 All Star Game and the YoungStars Game. I believe both games will be aired on Versus, with the YoungStars Game taking place on January 23 and the All Star Game taking place on January 24.

The full roster for the All Star Game is here via It is no surprise that goaltender Martin Brodeur was selected for his ninth All Star Game. Devils defenseman Brian Rafalski was also selected to the All Star Game, his second appearance (I do not know whether that includes the year he filled in for an injured Scott Stevens).

The rules for the YoungStars game mandates that all players must be 24 years old or younger and still on their rookie contract. Therefore, Devils left wing Zach Parise was selected for the YoungStars game. The full roster for the YoungStars game is here also through

Congratulations to Brodeur, Rafalski, and Parise for being selected for these games.

On the minor league front, Andy Greene is the sole representative from Lowell to take place in the 2007 AHL All Star Classic, being held in Toronto this year. The full rosters for the AHL All Star Classic can be viewed here through Congratulations to Greene for being selected in that contest.

CORRECTION: This All Star selection is Rafalski's third, not his second. Thanks Trendon (in comments).

Actually, this will be rafalski's third All-Star game as he was added to the 2000-01 team but did not play.
Excuse me, I just looked it up. 2001-02
