Ottawa to host the All-Star Game in 2012.

EJ Hradek of ESPN in a msg to Garrioch tonight tweeted.

Quote:
@SunGarrioch: I've also heard that Ottawa will host the 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend.

Edit:

Ken Warren has a piece up now that fleshes out the details a little more.

Quote:
League commissioner Gary Bettman has a scheduled meeting with Ottawa Senators brass next week at which point an announcement on the showcase game could be made. The 2010-11 all-star game has already been given to the Carolina Hurricanes.

If Ottawa is granted the game during Bettman’s luncheon with Senators owner Eugene Melnyk and general manager Bryan Murray, it won’t come as a complete surprise. The club has been on the short list to host the three-day event for several seasons, after Bettman promised Melnyk the NHL would accept Ottawa’s bid once the league’s previous commitments to other franchises had been fulfilled.

Nice, the year in which i expect Ottawa to win/challenge for the Cup.

It only makes sense. I am not being sarcastic by the way.

It must mean that they're getting a new jumbotron. It would be embarrassing if they didn't

It'll be about a month before that, so we're good.

EDIT: meant to say 11 months.
