All-Star trio: Syracuse Crunch well-represented at AHL Classic
The North Division squad at the AHL All-Star Game will be well represented in Springfield, MA in three weeks.
We found out early in the week that Ben Groulx would be the North Division team's coach, but on Thursday the players were announced.
Syracuse Crunch fan favorite Cory Conacher lands in the All-Star Classic for the third time in his career. Conacher was clutch in delivering the Crunch to the Calder Cup Final in 2017, which was also the last year he made the all-star festivities.
So far this season, Conacher has a whopping 36 points in 27 games played by way of 13 goals and 23 assists.
He'll be joined by a first-time all-star.
Connor Ingram, the 21-year old goalie that came on strong late in the 2018 season makes the honor for the first time in his career.
Ingram is 9-4 so far this season with a 2.44 goals against average.
His save percentage is good for 4th in the American Hockey League.
The Crunch is back home for two games this weekend, Friday and Saturday. The Crunch is technically in second place in the North Division but really in a virtual tie with Rochester for the top spot in the division.
