The Ontario Hockey League has decided to pull the plug on its annual all-star game in an effort to reduce player workload and injuries.
Commissioner David Branch announced the scheduling change Tuesday during a media conference call previewing the 2010-11 season, which kicks off Thursday.
Fatigue was the main concern, Branch said.
“It was the number one factor as to why we chose to not have an all-star game moving forward,” said Branch. “I think that while the players loved it, it just gets to a point where we’re taxing some of those key players far too much.”
