Penguins second-year defenseman Kris Letang today was chosen to participate in the Jan. 24 YoungStars Game, part of the All-Star weekend in Montreal.
Letang will be on the NHL "sophomore" team, which will take on a selection of rookies in a three-on-three competition. He has a goal and 12 assists this season.
The Penguins' Alex Goligoski, who leads all league rookie defensemen with six goals and 19 points, was not chosen.
That sets the Penguins All-Star contingent at three. Centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin led fan balloting and will start for the Eastern Conference in the main game.
