COLUMBUS -- The Chicago Blackhawks have six players on the 2012 NHL All-Star Game ballot, which was released Thursday by the league.
The Hawks were tied for the most players on the ballot with the Ducks, Flyers, Bruins and Penguins. The six Hawks are defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook and forwards Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and the MVP of the 2011 contest, Patrick Sharp.
Sharp, Kane, Toews and Keith were all-stars last year in Raleigh, North Carolina, and Sharp, who was not on the ballot on 2011 but was selected by the league, skated off with MVP honors after recording a goal and two assists as Team Lidstrom defeated Team Staal 11-10.
