Brodeur, Rafalski named to All-Star Team

DEVILS' BRODEUR HEADLINES ADDITIONS TO EASTERN CONFERENCE ROSTER FOR 2007 NHL ALL-STAR GAME
Devils defenseman Brian Rafalski also selected to the team


NEW YORK (Jan. 13, 2007) -- Veteran All-Star goaltender Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils heads the list of 15 players added to the Eastern Conference roster for the 2007 NHL All-Star Game, Wednesday, Jan. 24 at American Airlines Center in Dallas (8 p.m. ET, VERSUS, CBC, RDS, NHL Radio).

Brodeur will be making his ninth career All-Star Game appearance, fourth on the all-time goaltenders list behind Glenn Hall (13), Terry Sawchuk (11) and Patrick Roy (11). Entering the contest with a 3-1 record in his eight All-Star Game appearances, Brodeur could match Hall's record total of four career victories.

Defenseman Brian Rafalski will also make an appearance for the New Jersey Devils. Rafalski appeared in the 2004 NHL All-Star matchup, and was selected to participate in the 2002 NHL All-Star Game, but was forced to sit out due to injury.

The 34-year-old Montreal native is enjoying another superb season, leading the League in victories (26), shutouts (seven), minutes (2,524) and shots faced (1,187), ranking second in goals-against average (2.07) and third in save percentage (.927). Brodeur has moved into second place on the League's all-time victories list with 472, passing Terry Sawchuk and Ed Belfour since the start of the season, and has jumped to third on the all-time shutouts list with 87, passing Alex Connell, Tiny Thompson, Jacques Plante and Glenn Hall.

Others named to the Eastern Conference roster were: defensemen Brian Rafalski of the Devils, Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins and Tomas Kaberle of the Toronto Maple Leafs plus forwards Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Marian Hossa of the Atlanta Thrashers, Dany Heatley of the Ottawa Senators, Simon Gagne of the Philadelphia Flyers and Brendan Shanahan of the New York Rangers.

Also selected to the Eastern Conference roster were five players making their All-Star Game debut: forwards Eric Staal and Justin Williams from the Stanley Cup-champion Carolina Hurricanes, goaltender Cristobal Huet of the Montreal Canadiens, defenseman Jay Bouwmeester of the Florida Panthers and forward Jason Blake of the New York Islanders.
