ON THIS DAY LAST YEAR: The Ottawa Senators had four players elected to the All-Star game, including defenseman Erik Karlsson who led all vote-getters in fan balloting. Captain Daniel Alfredsson and fellow forwards Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza were also elected for the game that was being hosted by the Senators on Jan. 29. Toronto defenseman Dion Phaneuf and Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas joined them. Karlsson received a league-best 939,951 votes, 42,536 more than Alfredsson. About 24 million votes were cast by fans in the all-digital balloting.
