Eckford named to Canadian AHL All-Stars
The American Hockey League announced today that Lowell Devils defenseman Tyler Eckford has been selected to the Canadian AHL All-Stars for the 2010 AHL All-Star Classic, presented by Time Warner Communications, to be played January 18 & 19 at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine.  

Eckford, 24, is currently tied for third on the Devils in scoring with 21 points. He ranks first on Lowell with a +12 plus/minus rating and is tied for the team lead in assists with 16. The second-year pro out of Vancouver, BC was named Reebok/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Nov. 15, 2009 as he notched two goals, five assists and a plus-6 rating in three games.

A seventh round pick (217th overall) of the New Jersey Devils in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Eckford skated for three seasons with University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Last season during his rookie year, Eckford’s 27 points led all Devils defensemen, while his 25 assists ranked third on the squad.  

The 2010 Time Warner Cable AHL All-Star Classic will feature the top talent in the American Hockey League competing in the 2010 AHL All-Star Skills Competition on Monday, January 18 (8:00 p.m. ET) and the 2010 AHL All-Star Game on Tuesday, January 19 (6:00 p.m. ET), and will be televised live nationally in the United States and Canada.

Of the 492 players to take part in the AHL All-Star Classic since 1995, more than 94 percent have competed in the National Hockey League, including current Devils Yann Danis, Patrik Elias, Andy Greene, Mike Mottau and Zach Parise.

The Lowell Devils wrap up the calendar year with a New Year's Eve game versus the Manchester Monarchs on Thursday at 7:00PM.
