NHL All-Star Game 2011: Jeff Skinner, Paul Stastny Added To Roster

The final injury replacements have been named, and the 2011 NHL All-Star Game will feature one more hometown boy. Rookie Jeff Skinner of the Carolina Hurricanes will replace one of the injured forwards at the game, as will Colorado forward Paul Stastny. The NHL announced the news on Wednesday afternoon.

Injured All-Stars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Ales Hemsky and Tobias Enstrom all have replacements now. 

Skinner was already named to the rookie team at the Game. With he and the injured Jordan Eberle off the rookie roster now, the NHL named Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban and yet another hometown kid, Jamie McBain of the Hurricanes, to the rookie roster.

Midway through Friday night's All-Star Draft, the rookies will be split in half. A captain will be named for each group, and they'll select which team they want to join up with. The rookies will help the All-Star teams in Saturday night's Skills Competition.
