Sakic, the West captain, will be playing in his 12th all-star game and his fourth as a starter. He was the MVP of the 2004 game, which is the last one because of the lockout in 2005 and an Olympics break last year. Shanahan, the East captain, is an all-star for the eighth time. At 37, he's the oldest player on either squad.
Sakic made his all-star debut 17 years ago Sunday.
The all-star break begins Sunday. The all-stars will practice in Dallas on Monday night. The YoungStars game and skills competition will be held Tuesday night.
