The American Hockey League announced the rosters for the Eastern and Western Conference All-Star rosters for the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic. The game will take place Jan. 29-30 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.
Cory Conacher, Trevor Smith, and Mark Barberio have all earned a spot on the Eastern Squad. They will play side by side with notable players such as Keith Aucoin and Chris Bourqe of the Bears, Corey Locke of the Senators, Simon Despres of the Penguins, and Michael Leighton of the Phantoms. Former Admiral Cedrick Desjardins will apper in goal for the Western Squad.
Each one of these players have worked hard to get where they are today and are truly worthy of their all-star status. Conacher and Smith have been racking up the goals while Barberio chips in with the assists and keeping things in check on the blueline. Great job for all three.
From Jan. 5-23, fans will have the opportunity to vote for the starting lineups for the 2012 AHL All-Star Game by visiting theahl.com or facebook.com/theahl and completing the official Reebok AHL All-Star Fan Ballot.
