Oliver Ekman-Larsson joins Team Foligno in the 2015 NHL All-Star Game

The young Swede will have plenty of firepower with him on the blueline.

The Arizona Coyotes are only represented at the 2015 NHL All-Star Game by Oliver Ekman-Larsson, but he will get a chance to showcase his skills alongside some very talented teammates.

OEL was selected by Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno as the sixth and final defenseman on the team. He joins Drew Doughty, Duncan Keith, Dustin Byfuglien, Brent Burns, and Kevin Shattenkirk, who make up four of the league's Top 10 point producers among defensemen this season.

Additionally, OEL was reunited with another teammate who earned a fond place in the hearts of many a Coyotes fan, as current Vancouver Canucks forward Radim Vrbata was selected by Team Foligno as well. It's possible the Ekman-Larsson to Vrbata connection that worked for many power play goals will be reunited in a couple days.

This year's All-Star Fantasy Draft was certainly odd, and definitely entertaining. Hopefully the rest of the weekend will live up to tonight's fun.
