The rounds passed by rather quickly and with each passing round, the obvious question started to be asked. Would Zdeno Chara really let teammate Tyler Seguin be the last pick in the NHL All-Star Game fantasy draft?
The answer? No, he wouldn't.
Chara saved his Bruins teammate any potential embarrassment by taking Seguin in the second-to-last round of the second annual draft.
After letting him sweat it out, Chara made good with his young teammate by asking on him stage if he wanted to "hug it out."
By choosing Seguin, Chara made sure that all three Bruins representatives would remain together on Team Chara. The big defenseman took goalie Tim Thomas with his second-round pick.
Chara actually had the first pick overall, but he used that pick on Red Wings playmaker Pavel Datsyuk.
The opposing captain, Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson, also ensured that Chara wouldn't have to draft any Vancouver Canucks. He took both Henrik and Daniel Sedin before eventually taking defenseman Alexander Edler.
San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture was the last player selected in the draft. Last year's Mr. Irrelevant, Phil Kessel, was the eighth-round pick of Team Chara.
