Let the voting begin! NHL unveils All-Star fan ballot

On Friday, the NHL released its 100-player ballot for fan voting in the 2011 All-Star Game.

Starting on Nov. 15 through Jan. 3, fans can vote for three forwards, two defensemen and one goaltender, regardless of conference, and the top vote-getters will be the starters. The NHL All-Star Game is on Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C. The remaining 36 All-Star players will be named by the NHL hockey ops department, as per the new format and rules released by the league this past Wednesday.
