AHL All Star Game

Last night the AHL all star game was played in Winnipeg. Team Canada defeated Planet USA (players from the rest of the world) 9-4. The rosters for the game can be found here.

Some of the more successful players in the game were Martin St Pierre (in the Chicago system) and Don MacLean (in the Detroit system) who each scored 2 goals for Canada. Nathan Paetsch (Buffalo system) added three assists from the Canadian defence. John Pohl (Toronto system) added two goals for the Planet USA team. The co-MVPs of the game were goalies Wade Flaherty (Vancouver system) and Yann Danis (Montreal system), they each allowed one goal on thirteen shots in their period of action.

This game is a combination of future NHLers, career AHLers and players stuck in the minors because their salary is above $75,000 and their team is reluctant to put them on re-entry waivers.
