London Knights: NHL All-Stars, AHL All-Stars & CHL Top Prospects

January 30, 2012

This past weekend Ottawa, Ontario said “cheers” to 5 London Knights’ alumni at the NHL All-Star Game:

  • Corey Perry, Anaheim Ducks, Team Chara
  • Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks, Team Chara
  • Daniel Girardi, New York Rangers, Team Alfredsson
  • John Tavares, New York Islanders, Team Alfredsson
  • Dennis Wideman, Washington Capitals, Team Chara

Team Chara took the game 12-9 with goals from Kane (1,0), Perry (1,1) and Tavares (1,1) with assists from Wideman (0,1) and Girardi (0,1).

Pat SuperKane took the fan-selected award for the Breakaway Challenge in the SuperSkills competition with Corey Perry close behind.

Atlantic City, New Jersey is welcoming AHL All-Stars this weekend, holding the skills competition on Sunday night with the game to follow on Monday – Nazem Kadri, Toronto Marlies was named, but is currently on the roster for the parent Toronto Maple Leafs and will not be in attendance.

And the CHL Top Prospects Game is being held in Kelowna, British Columbia on Tuesday (skills competition) and Wednesday of this week.  London Knights named to Team Orr were forward Andreas Athanasiou (@AndreasA86) and defenceman Olli Matta. Matta unfortunately will not be in attendance due to the flu.  Athanasiou will play after sitting out the past few regular season games with a charley horse.  Additional shout out to former Knight Dane Fox (@dane_fox74), now of the Erie Otters who was a late add to the game.

Its always good to see our London Knights well-represented in each of these three events – Go Knights Go!
