Senators' Alfredsson, Bruins' Chara named All-Star captains

The face of the Senators and the former anchor of their blue line have been named captains for this month's All-Star Game in Ottawa.

Senators forward Daniel Alfredsson and Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara have been selected to wear the C's and pick the teams for the NHL showcase. The All-Stars were selected last week, and each of them was asked to sumbit his top three picks for captain.

Alfredsson, who has played 1,098 games in Ottawa, was an obvious pick. The players also voted for Chara, the reigning Stanley Cup captain who played for the Senators from 2001 to '06. They will pick players for their teams in a draft Jan. 26.

Buffalo's Jason Pominville and Luke Adam will participate in the All-Star festivities Jan. 28-29 in Scotiabank Place.
