Backes Selected to Team Staal
Blues forward David Backes will join Team Staal during the Honda SuperSkills and NHL All-Star Game this weekend.

Backes was selected in the 17th round during the NHL All-Star Player Fantasy Draft, which was televised live on Friday to kick off All-Star Weekend in Raleigh, N.C.

In a new twist for this year's event, Red Wings defenseman Nick Lidstrom and Hurricanes forward Eric Staal were selected as team captains for the 2011 NHL All-Star Game.

Both team captains participated in Friday's fantasy draft to select their teams from the pool of All-Stars with no regard to conference.

"None of us feel like tussling with this guy," said Team Staal assistant captain Ryan Kesler, who announced the selection of Backes.

Fans can see Backes on Saturday, Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. CT on VERSUS for the Honda SuperSkills competion. In addition, he'll suit up for the All-Star Game on Sunday at 3 p.m. CT on VERSUS.

Below are the complete rosters for each team (in order of selection).

Team Staal: Eric Staal (C), Ryan Kesler (A), Mike Green (A), Cam Ward, Alexander Ovechkin, Daniel Sedin, Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas, Henrik Lundqvist, Marc Staal, Patrick Sharp, Dan Boyle, Carey Price, Jeff Skinner, Kris Letang, Claude Giroux, Erik Karlsson, Corey Perry, Patrik Elias, David Backes, Paul Stastny

Team Lidstrom: Nicklas Lidstrom (C), Patrick Kane (A), Martin St. Louis (A), Steven Stamkos, Duncan Keith, Henrik Sedin, Shea Weber,  Rick Nash, Daniel Briere, Dustin Byfuglien, Jonathan Toews, Marc-Andre Fleury, Jonas Hiller, Brad Richards, Keith Yandle, Brent Burns, Martin Havlat, Anze Kopitar, Matt Duchene, Loui Eriksson, Phil Kessel
