Seguin, Chara Named 2012 NHL All-Stars

One of the best teams in the NHL, the Bruins, will be well-represented at the NHL All-Star Game in February.

Joining goalie Tim Thomas, who is set to start in net, will be forward Tyler Seguin and defenseman Zdeno Chara.

In just his second season, Seguin leads the B’s with 17 goals and 38 points (2nd on the team with21 assists). He leads the NHL with a +33 plus/minus rating.

Chara, meanwhile, is having another stellar season. The 6-9 defenseman is fourth in the NHL with a +27 plus/minus. He also has 7 goals and 18 assists.

Perhaps the biggest Bruins snub is center Patrice Bergeron, who has still not made an All-Star game in his career. This year, Bergy has 11 goals, a team-leading 25 assists, and 36 points. Like every other Bruin, his plus/minus is also off the charts: +27.
