Carolina's Eric Staal and Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom have been named captains for the NHL All-Star Game, the players association just announced. No Sidney Crosby and No. 87 may not play in the game because of his concussion.
The Toronto Globe & Mail, in fact, reported this morning that Crosby may refuse to come because he's upset there was no suspension on either of the two head shots he's taken this month.
Staal and Lidstrom will pick their teams in the all-star lottery on Jan. 28 and also set up the skills competition the next night. The game is Jan. 30.
