Ducks Have Three All-Star Starters

Player Comments

The National Hockey League announced today that Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf, goaltender J.S. Giguere and defenseman Scott Niedermayer have been voted to start for the Western Conference in the 2009 NHL All-Star Game, slated for Sunday, Jan. 25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec.

This marks the second time in history that a Southern California NHL team (Ducks or Kings) have had three starters named to the All-Star Game, following the 1988-89 Los Angeles Kings, who had three players voted to the 1989 contest (Wayne Gretzky, Luc Robitaille, Steve Duchesne). It also marks the first time since 2001 that the Ducks have had multiple All-Star starters (Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya).

Comments from Getzlaf, Niedermayer and Giguere coming later today

Getzlaf, 23 (5/10/85), has appeared in 38 games with the Ducks this season, scoring 15-29=44 points with a +4 rating and 74 PIM. Among NHL leaders, he ranks tied for seventh in points, seventh in assists, tied for second in power play points (3-17=20) and tied for first in power play assists. Getzlaf is making his second career All-Star appearance (2008). He received 716,569 votes from fans to finish among the top three Western Conference forwards.
