Thomas, Chara are All-Stars

Bruins goalie Tim Thomas and defenseman Zdeno Chara have been named to the new-look NHL All-Star Game.

Of course, there’s no telling yet what team they’ll be playing for.

Squads for this year’s star-studded contest — the NHL’s first All-Star Game since 2009, due to last year’s Olympics — will be picked playground-style, with two captains holding a sort of real-life fantasy draft.

Tyler Seguin is one of 12 rookies who will take part in the All-Star weekend skills competition.
