For the first time in six years, the Minnesota Wild will have two representatives in the NHL All-Star Game.

Right wing Martin Havlat, who leads the Wild with 43 points, was added to the roster for the game on Monday as an injury replacement.

It's the second All-Star nod for Havlat, the first coming in 2007. He joins defenseman Brent Burns, who was named to the game last month.

Goalie Dwayne Roloson and defenseman Filip Kuba played in the game in 2004, when it was played in St. Paul.

The Wild plays on the road against Havlat's old team, the Chicago Blackhawks, on Monday night.
