Bruins captain Zdeno Chara held the first overall pick in the fantasy draft to determine teams for the 2012 NHL All-Star game Thursday night and selected Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk with the top pick. Chara then drafted teammate Tim Thomas in the second round.

The other Bruin in the player pool, Tyler Seguin, had to wait quite a while for his name to be called. After picking the likes of Carey Price, Phil Kessel and Dennis Wideman, Chara selected Seguin in the 19th round.

Upon being selected, Thomas was asked about his controversial decision to not attend the White House Monday for political reasons.

“I followed my conscience,” Thomas said of his decision. “I’m extremely grateful for all the support I’ve gotten from my teammates, my friends and my fans.”

Here are the results of the draft:
