2012 NHL All Star Draft: Dennis Wideman Taking In 15th Round By Team Chara

The Washington Capitals only All Star, Dennis Wideman, was selected by Team Chara in the 15th round of the NHL All Star Game Fantasy Draft. Zdeno Chara and co-captain Joffrey Lupul were looking to add a defenseman, and Wideman got the call. The player picked last receives a car and $20,000 to donate to a charity of his choice. But Wideman was never on the hook for being picked last, as a forward has to be taken with the final pick.
