With this years All-star game rapidly approaching the NHL announced a new way for fans to influence who plays in the game. The league decides one player from every team. Then it is up to the fans to decide who else they want to see play in the game. As a result, fans will have the opportunity to vote in twelve other NHL players. Votes can be done online and through Twitter.

It seems like some fans really enjoy All-Star weekend or they can't stand it. Sometimes star players do what they can to avoid playing in the game. Players who are not invited to attend often take this opportunity to take a brief vacation. Other than seeing some fancy plays, the game really has no meaning. On the other hand, it is a nice opportunity for fans to vote on who they would like to see participate in the game itself. Perhaps this is the leagues way of trying to get more people involved in the weekend.
Hopefully this does not turn into an embarrassment for the league as fans vote in some players. Remember the whole John Scott fiasco several years ago? Look for future announcements about which thirty-two players are selected as well as the other twelve players voted on by the fans. This year's game will take place in Sunrise, Florida in February.
