Niskanen is a Youngstar, Stars make a trade

 The NHL has named the rookie’s for this years Youngstars game.  Our little Matt Niskanen was chosen.  Aren’t we all so proud?  Youngstars rosters are as follows:

EASTERN CONFERENCE

D-MEN
Tobias Enstrom (Atlanta Thrashers)
Kris Letang (Pittsburgh Penguins)
Mike Lundin (Tampa Bay Lightning)
Marc Staal (New York Rangers)

FORWARDS
Nicklas Backstrom (Washington Capitals)
Brandon Dubinsky (New York Rangers)
Tyler Kennedy (Pittsburgh Penguins)
Milan Lucic (Boston Bruins)

WESTERN CONFERENCE

D-MEN
Alexander Edler (Vancouver Canucks)
Erik Johnson (St. Louis Blues)

Matt Niskanen (Dallas Stars)

FORWARDS
Sam Gagner (Edmonton Oilers)
Patrick Kane (Chicago Blackhawks)
Peter Mueller (Phoenix Coyotes)
David Perron (St. Louis Blues)

First of all, don’t let the subject make your stomach drop like it did mine when I first heard it.  Stars have traded right wing Junior Lessard for defensiveman Dan Jancevski from Tampa Bay.  Jancevski was originally drafted by the Stars in 1999, mostly playing in Iowa.  He wore the C for Iowa in the ’05-’06 season.
