The All-Star Fantasy Draft is Friday night in the host city, Columbus, where Nick Foligno of the hometown Blue Jackets and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks will serve as captains and select players to their respective teams.
Ryan Getzlaf (Anaheim) and Rick Nash (NYR) already have been selected to Team Toews as assistant captains. Drew Doughty (Los Angeles) and Patrick Kane (Chicago) will serve in the same role for Team Foligno.
Here’s some important information on the draft format and roster rules that the captains must follow, per the league.
One of the most interesting parts of these drafts is watching which player gets picked last. Phil Kessel was the final player taken in 2011 and Logan Couture was selected with the last pick in 2012.
