NHL notebook: Hand injury sidelines Blackhawks’ Versteeg | TribLIVE

Blackhawks forwards Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, and goalie Corey Crawford earned spots Saturday based on fan voting. The only non-Chicago All-Star in the group is Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons, who was the leading vote-getter in the six-week campaign with 1,574,896. The All-Star game, the NHL’s first in three years, will be held on Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio. The remaining roster of players will be announced on Jan. 10. Kane (1,232,201 votes) and Toews (1,217,210) finished second and third behind Girgensons. Keith (1,198,173) was next, and first among defensemen, and followed by Seabrook (1,016,992), who was sixth overall. Crawford (1,099,504) was one spot ahead of him to win the goalie vote. Fans cast more than 35 million votes, up 52 percent from 2012 – the last time the NHL held an All-Star game. Nearly 27 percent were cast by fans outside of North America – a 7,000 percent increase from three years ago. There was no game in 2013 due to an NHL lockout, and none last year because of the league’s participation in the Winter Olympics. source: http://abc7chicago.com/sports/5-chicago-blackhawks-voted-nhl-all-stars-by-fans/460828/
