The policy enacted at the 2008 GM meetings, by Bettman and supposedly acknowledged by GMs, stated that players can't miss the All-Star Game unless they are absent from their team's last regular season game. If the player appears in the final game prior to the break, he must play in the ASG or will be suspended from the first game following the ASG. I'm not sure if that has been modified since those meetings. Perhaps if a player got injured during that last game, medical documentation equals a permission slip.
