Zetterberg leads Wings\' fab five on all-star ballot
NEW YORK – A Western Conference-high of five Red Wings has been named to the ballot used to select the starters in this season’s NHL All-Star to take place in Atlanta on January 27.

Goalie Dominik Hasek, defensemen Nicklas Lidstrom and Brian Rafalski and forwards Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk are listed on the ballot, which will be available for fans beginning November 13. Voting ends on Jan. 2.

For the second consecutive season, the all-star fan balloting process will be entirely digital. Fans around the world can “Vote Now, Vote Often” online at NHL.com to select the starting line-ups for the All-Star Game. In addition, U.S. fans also can cast votes through Verizon Wireless cell phones.

The 2007-08 season marks the 20th year in which fans will determine the starting line-ups for the game. Fans can vote for six Eastern Conference All-Stars and six Western Conference All-Stars: three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender for each team. If a player is not listed on the ballot, a space is provided for “write-in” votes. The three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender from each conference receiving the most votes will comprise the starting line-ups. Each of the 30 clubs has at least two representatives on the ballot.

XM, which airs every NHL game for every team as the exclusive satellite radio network of the NHL, is the title sponsor and 2K Sports, a leading publisher of current and next generation sports video games including NHL 2K8 returns as the presenting sponsor.

NHL broadcast partners VERSUS, RDS (in Canada) and NASN (Europe) will team-up with the NHL to deliver a comprehensive and global on-air presence to All-Star fan balloting. Each broadcast partner will provide unique, in-game “Vote Now, Vote Often” features, broadcast promos and online direct links to the NHL All-Star Fan Balloting section on NHL.com.

NHL Member Clubs will activate local “Vote Now, Vote Often” campaigns, supporting their balloted players.
 
The 2008 NHL All-Star Weekend in Atlanta will feature live national broadcasts of the Dodge/NHL SuperSkills event on Saturday, Jan. 26 and the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 27 on VERSUS in the United States, and CBC and RDS in Canada. NASN and other international broadcasters will provide live coverage of both the Dodge/NHL SuperSkills event and the NHL All-Star Game to more than 115 countries and territories in Europe. NHL RADIO on Westwood One will provide exclusive, national radio coverage, which can be heard on stations around the United States and Canada as well as on XM Satellite Radio's NHL Home Ice and NHL.com.
