NHL All Star Game 2012: Steven Stamkos Will Play With Claude Giroux, Logan Couture For Team Alfredsson

The Tampa Bay Lightning's Steven Stamkos has had quite the weekend so far in Ottawa. The NHL's leading goal scorer was selected in the seventh round of the fantasy draft on Thursday night by Daniel Alfredsson. Stamkos then led Team Alfredsson to a convincing Skills Competition victory on Saturday night, as he was the last man standing in the elimination shootout challenge. On Sunday, the All-Star Game finally arrives and Stamkos will look to continue his show in front of the entire league.

It was announced that he will start on a line with the San Jose Sharks' Logan Couture and Philadelphia Flyers' Claude Giroux.

Via @TBLightning:

While Stamkos leads the league in goals, Giroux is second only to Evgeni Malkin in points and among the league's top five assist men. The Lightning star should have plenty of opportunities to continue the show on Sunday in what is typically an offensively explosive game.

We'll have plenty more on the All-Star game throughout the day here at SB Nation Tampa Bay, so keep it locked to this StoryStream.
