In an odd exchange during the 4th round which was picked up by the microphone, Alfredsson pointed to his list and said "what about Shea Weber", to which his assistant captain Henrik Lundqvist said "no", and pointed to a different name, which turned out to be Claude Giroux.

Weber & Suter were the 4th and 5th defensemen taken, after Erik Karlsson (chosen by his teammate Alfredsson), Kimmo Timonen (Team Chara) and Kris Letang (Team Alfredsson). The draft results can be found at NHL.com.

Craig Smith, as a rookie, will participate in the Skills Competition as a member of Team Alfredsson.

The Skills Competition takes place Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Central on the NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus), while the All-Star Game itself is on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Central, also on NBC Sports.
