Add Keith Yandle of the Phoenix Coyotes to the list of 2011 NHL All-Stars. The NHL named Yandle an injury replacement on Tuesday afternoon.
The National Hockey League announced today that Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle has been selected to participate in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, January 30. This marks Yandle's first career NHL All-Star appearance.
Yandle replaces Atlanta's Tobias Enstrom, the only defenseman that will miss the game with injury, after he broke a finger on his right hand on Sunday vs. New York.
Two replacement spots are still available after Yandle's addition and the addition of Minnesota forward Martin Havlat.
