American Airlines presents \"NHL Salute to a Generation of Stars\"
NEW YORK – As part of the 2007 NHL All-Star Celebration, American Airlines will serve as the title sponsor of "NHL Salute to a Generation of Stars," held on Monday, January 22 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. This salute, hosted by Academy Award-winning actor and long-time hockey fan Cuba Gooding, Jr., will serve as a showcase of two generations of hockey players: those who dominated and those inspired by their greatness. This presentation will follow open practices of the 2007 Eastern and Western All-Star teams, presented by Verizon Yellow Pages.

NHL legends scheduled to appear include: 19-time All-Star Ray Bourque; Hockey Hall of Famer and three-time Norris Trophy winner Paul Coffey; top-scoring U.S.-born skater Phil Housley; 1999 Stanley Cup winner with the Dallas Stars Brett Hull; Hockey Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux; Olympic Gold Medalist and 13-time All-Star Al MacInnis; six-time Stanley Cup winner and 16-time All-Star Mark Messier; Hockey Hall of Famer Larry Murphy; four-time All-Star Joe Nieuwendyk; five-time All-Star Adam Oates and eight-time All-Star Luc Robitaille.

Fans will have the opportunity to preview the players of the Eastern and Western teams. Each team will conduct an open practice while their coaches describe the drills live from the ice. In addition, tributes to the stars from yesterday will speak to their experience in hockey and the impact they have made on the game.
