Logan Couture was the last pick of the 2012 NHL All-Star fantasy draft, and was rewarded with a brand new Honda Crosstour.

Couture was the lone Sharks player who was named to the All-Star Game, which will take place Sunday in Ottawa.

It came down to Couture and Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars -- two of the NHL's rising stars.

Before Zdeno Chara selected Benn with the penultimate pick, Couture was asked if he wanted to go last and if he wanted the car.

His response was qualified, "Maybe, what kind of car is it?"

The crowd burst into laughter and Couture was told, "It's a nice one."

Couture tweeted the following upon the conclusion of the draft:
