The All-Star Game player draft is over. After taking Pavel Datsyuk with his first pick, Zdeno Chara drafted Tim Thomas.
With his second-to-last pick, Chara tabbed Tyler Seguin. The two hugged after Chara announced Seguin’s name.
“Definitely getting hot back there,” Seguin said with a smile of the wait. “I don’t know if it was the lights. Little nervous. All four of us were when we were on the stage. Not embarrassed, because everybody was having a good time.”
The All-Star Game is Sunday at 4 p.m. at Scotiabank Place.
