It should come as no surprise to anyone, especially Atlanta Thrashers fans, that Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom were selected to the 2011 NHL All-Star squad. The NHL recently published the official roster and the two talented defensemen were on the list.

Both Atlanta players are having exceptional seasons at the halfway point. Byfuglien has consistently led his team in goals and points and Enstrom has upped his game, scoring more goals while setting up players for opportunities with astute passes.

Without a doubt, Byfuglien and Enstrom have helped lead the Thrashers to a winning record and perhaps their first playoff berth in years and only the second one in Thrashers history.

Byfuglien is on track to score 27 goals and nearly 80 points. He also is one of the league leaders in game winning goals.

Enstrom has improved his play offensively and defensively, utilizing smart positional play along with his excellent puck handling skills to engineer consistent offensive opportunities for his defense partner, Byfuglien and his other Atlanta teammates.

Enstrom is also on track for a career high season tracking at 70 points.
