Hartnell leads the Flyers with 25 goals and all of the NHL with 13 on the power play. He has scored five goals in his past two games: two in a 4-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, and three consecutive in the second period of a 6-5 shootout loss to the Boston Bruins on Sunday.
He is second on the Flyers with 44 points.
This will be his first All-Star Game appearance, but his second trip to an All-Star Weekend, having
participated in the 2002 YoungStars Game.
The All-Star fantasy draft will be held Thursday in Ottawa. It will divide the All-Stars into two teams: Team Alfredsson, led by Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson and his assistant, goaltender Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers; and Team Chara, featuring Boston captain Zdeno Chara and his assistant, forward Joffrey Lupul of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
