The NHL released its list of players available on the fan ballot for the 2012 NHL All-Star Fan Balloting™ Thursday. Three Panthers are among the 127 players available for voting; Brian Campbell, Ed Jovanovski and Tomas Fleischmann. Fans can also use the write-in option to nominate their favorite Panthers players not on the ballot.

With impressive starts this season, the Dallas Stars and the Pittsburgh Penguins -- leaders of the  Western and Eastern Conferences, respectively - hold a combined 11 spots. The ballot includes first-time career appearances from Stars forwards Jamie Benn and Loui Eriksson and Penguins forwards James Neal and Jordan Staal and defenseman Kris Letang. Joining their teammates are ballot veterans Sidney Crosby, Marc-Andre Fleury, Evgeni Malkin of the Penguins and Kari Lehtonen, Mike Ribeiro and Sheldon Souray of the Stars.

Other players on the ballot include Philadelphia Flyers forward Jaromir Jagr who makes his first appearance to the fan voting platform since his campaign for the 2008 NHL All-Star festivities; the Ottawa Senators, the first-time hosts of the 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend, have five representatives; and the Anaheim Ducks, Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Flyers and Penguins each have six players vying to be named first NHL All-Stars in the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL® All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 29.
