The 2012 All-Star Ballot is announced!
Kris and five teammates (James Neal, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury, and Jordan Staal) made the ballot for the 2012 NHL All-Star game! It is so great to see the Penguins well represented on the ballot, especially knowing that they can all make the team is even more exciting! The turnout last year in votes for Kris, Fleury, and Geno was so dominant that they were ranked in the top 6 in voting!
