*Rapper Drake, who hails from the hockey-obsessed country of Canada, has been chosen to perform at the 2012 NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 29 on NBC Sports Network – the cable channel once known as Versus.

Drake is set to be joined by fellow rapper Outasight, as well as Javier Colon, winner of NBC’s “The Voice.” Colon will perform the National Anthem on the NHL game telecast from Ottawa.

Drake will perform during the second intermission, while Outasight, AKA Richard Andrew, will give his rendition of “Tonight is the Night” during the NHL All-Star player introductions.
