OTTAWA (AP) -- Toronto Maple Leafs forwards Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul have been added to the roster for this month's NHL All-Star game in Ottawa.

The league on Thursday began announcing players for the Jan. 29 showcase.

Kessel is second in league scoring with 48 points. Lupul, his linemate, has 47 points.

Also placed on the roster were NHL leading scorer Claude Giroux and Kimmo Timonen of Philadelphia; Chicago's Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane; Dustin Byfuglien of Winnipeg; Brian Campbell of Florida; and Jamie Benn of Dallas.

Four players for the host Senators were previously voted in by fans _ Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, Milan Michalek and Erik Karlsson, along with Toronto's Dion Phaneuf and Boston goaltender Tim Thomas.
