The Puck Stops Here

AHL All Star Game

It is All Star Game season.  The KHL All Star Game was played over the weekend with Team West defeating Team East 18-16 in a game where defence wasn't played.  The CHL Top Prospects Game is this week in Calgary.  The other major remaining All Star Game is the AHL Game.  This year will not be a traditional All Star Game.  On February 12th, the AHL All Stars will play against Farjestad BK of the Swedish Elite League in a game in St John's, Newfoundland.  Here is the AHL All Star Team:

Goaltenders:

Jake Allen (Chicago)
Martin Jones (Manchester)

Defencemen:

Chad Billins (Abbotsford)
TJ Brennan (Toronto)
Cody Goloubef (Springfield)
Alexey Marchenko (Grand Rapids)
Brayden McNabb (Rochester)
Frederic St Denis (Springfield)

Forwards:

Brett Connolly (Syracuse)
Brian Gibbons (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton)
Mike Hoffman (Binghamton)
Jason Jaffray (St John's)
Travis Morin (Texas)
Brandon Pirri (Rockford)
Colton Sceviour (Texas)
Colton Sissons (Milwaukee)
Ryan Spooner (Providence)
Ben Street (Abbotsford)
Ryan Strome (Bridgeport)
Linden Vey (Manchester)

Jason Jaffray has been selected as captain of the team.  It will be interesting to see a different style of an All Star Game.  This might be a more competitive game than some All Star Games since these are two separate leagues playing against one another.
