The American Hockey League announced the full rosters for their annual All-Star Classic on Thursday afternoon. Two members of the Toronto Marlies have been named All-Stars.
The AHL’s All-Star format mirrors that of the National Hockey League as all four divisions play in a 3-on-3 tournament. This year’s All-Star Classic will be hosted by the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in Allentown, PA on January 29-30.
Both Kasperi Kapanen and Brendan Leipsic will be representing the North Division team. Kapanen currently leads the Marlies with 14 goals, while Leipsic leads with 21 assist. Both players are tied for the team lead with 30 points.
