The NHL has officially decided upon the roster for the 2012 Tim Horton’s NHL All-Star Game. The game will take place on Sunday, January 29th in Ottawa, but only after the player fantasy draft on Thursday January 26th.

Six players were voted in by the fans earlier this month:

Daniel Alfredsson (Ottawa), Jason Spezza (Ottawa), Milan Michalek (Ottawa), Erik Karlsson (Ottawa), Dion Phaneuf (Toronto), Tim Thomas (Boston).

The remaining players announced this morning are as follows:

All-Star Forwards:

Jamie Benn (Dallas), Pavel Datsyuk (Detroit), Marian Gaborik (New York), Claude Giroux (Philadelphia), Marian Hossa (Chicago), Jarome Iginla (Calgary), Patrick Kane (Chicago), Phil Kessel (Toronto), Mikko Koivu (Minnesota), Joffrey Lupul (Toronto), Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh), Logan Couture (San Jose), Alex Ovechkin (Washington), Jason Pominville (Buffalo), Daniel Sedin (Vancouver), Henrik Sedin (Vancouver), Tyler Seguin (Boston), Corey Perry (Anaheim), Steven Stamkos (Tampa Bay), John Tavares (NY Islanders), Jonathan Toews (Chicago).

All-Star Defenseman

Dustin Byfuglien (Winnipeg), Brian Campbell (Florida), Zdeno Chara (Boston), Alex Edler (Vancouver), Dan Girardi (NY Rangers), Shea Weber (Nashville), Keith Yandle (Phoenix), Dennis Wideman (Washington), Ryan Suter (Nashville), Kimmo Timonen (Philadelphia)

All-Star Goaltenders

Brian Elliot (St. Louis), Jimmy Howard (Detroit), Henrik Lundqvist (NY Rangers), Carey Price (Montreal), Jonathan Quick (Los Angeles)

All-Star Rookies

Luke Adam (Buffalo), Sean Couturier (Philadelphia), Justin Faulk (Carolina), Colin Greening (Ottawa), Adam Henrique (New Jersey), Cody Hodgson (Vancouver), Ryan Johansen (Columbus), Gabriel Landeskog (Colorado), Adam Larsson (New Jersey), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (Edmonton), Craig Smith (nashville), Matt Read (Philadelphia).

That completes the list. And there’s no way I can end this without making note of the injustice in the Anze Kopitar snub. Does anyone remember his contributions to the All-Star game last year?
