Mario Lemieux needed only nine games to prove he is still an All-Star.
Lemieux, who ended his 3 1/2-year retirement in December, was picked Tuesday as a reserve for the NHL's North American All-Star roster.
Lemieux, who is also the owner of the Penguins, has nine goals and 10 assists. He will be making his ninth All-Star appearance.
Lemieux is a three-time All-Star MVP who holds the All-Star record for points in a game with six (three goals, three assists).
Lemieux was the MVP in 1985, 1988 and 1990 and ranks second in career All-Star Game in goals (11) and points (20).
Burke has had a sensational first half with the Coyotes. Burke is 15-10-9 with a 1.93 goals-against average.
The World team reserves will be announced Wednesday. The players are chosen by the league's hockey operations department, in consultation with general managers.
