    The NHL changed its All-Star Game selection process this year, allowing fans to vote to determine the final player on the roster. It was called the 'Last Men In' vote.

    Letang will be playing in his fifth All-Star Game, tying him with Hall of Famer Paul Coffey for the most appearances by a Pittsburgh defenseman, according to the Penguins.

    He will join captain Sidney Crosby in San Jose for the game on Jan. 26.
