Online fan balloting for the 2012 National Lacrosse League All-Star Game is now underway at NLL.com. The 2012 All-Star Game, presented by Reebok Lacrosse takes place on Saturday, February 25 in Buffalo at First Niagara Center, home of the Buffalo Bandits.
The Swarm sent four players to the 2011 All-Star Game: F Ryan Benesch, G Nick Patterson, F Callum Crawford and T Andrew Watt. Both Benesch and Patterson started for the West.
Fans can select their starting lineups for the East and West All-Star teams. The starting lineups consist of two forwards, two defensemen, one transition player and one goaltender. The online balloting will remain open until February 5th. Fans can vote as often as they’d like. The fan votes will combine with the votes of the league’s General Managers & Head Coaches, as well as the league’s covering media, to select the starters. Each group’s votes will count for one-third of the total.
