Marlies' Hamilton shines at AHL All-Star Game

Monday, 01.28.2013 / 11:26 PM / AHL Update

NHL.com

Toronto Marlies forward Ryan Hamilton completed a hat trick with 11.2 seconds remaining in regulation, breaking a tie and sending the Western Conference to a 7-6 win against the Eastern Conference in the 2013 American Hockey League All-Star Game at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., on Monday night.

Hamilton, who was named the Dunkin' Donuts All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, scored the final three goals of the night for the West to record the seventh hat trick in All-Star Game history. Mark Arcobello of the Oklahoma City Barons tallied three assists and rookie forwards Drew Shore of the San Antonio Rampage and Jason Zucker of the Houston Aeros notched a goal and an assist each for the West.

Eakins, Richardson reunite at AHL All-Star Game

Saturday, 01.26.2013 / 9:00 AM / AHL Update

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Like any mid-season exhibition, this weekend's 2013 Dunkin' Donuts AHL All-Star Classic is a unique opportunity for some of the game's best prospects to congregate in a relaxed environment.

For opposing coaches Dallas Eakins and Luke Richardson, it will be a fun reunion that has been a long time coming.

"I'm honored to go represent our team," Eakins, the Toronto Marlies coach who will appear in the game for the second consecutive year, said. "But selfishly, I haven't been able to see Luke a whole lot lately. I'm really looking forward to hanging out and catching up."

The American Hockey League's All-Star Game, which takes place Jan. 28 in Providence, RI, should be the perfect place for the two longtime defensemen to rekindle a friendship that began almost 30 years ago with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League.

AHL to discontinue hybrid icing rule

Tuesday, 01.15.2013 / 4:01 PM / AHL Update

NHL.com

The American Hockey League's Board of Governors has voted to discontinue its current test of the hybrid icing rule, effective with Friday's games.

"We believe that 564 games has been a sufficient test period for 'hybrid icing,' and that the application of the rule has been positive for the most part," AHL president Dave Andrews said in a statement Tuesday. "But because we have more than 300 players recalled to the National Hockey League each season, it is our view that these players should have the benefit of a consistent application of the icing rule in both the AHL and NHL."

Young stars have edge after spending time in AHL

Monday, 01.14.2013 / 9:00 AM / AHL Update

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

While many players either skated overseas or on their own during the work stoppage, several of the game's bright young stars honed their skills these past few months in the American Hockey League.

Those who stayed in North America and played within the systems of the parent clubs should benefit when competing for an NHL roster spot during training camp.

With that in mind, NHL.com takes a closer look at players who could turn heads during the 2012-13 NHL season (list is alphabetized by NHL city):

AHL Roundup: Atkinson on tear, Gardiner heating up

Each Monday, NHL.com will take a look back at the weekend that was in the American Hockey League with an emphasis on the young stars and top prospects that are continuing their development. Here are some of the highlights from the past few days in the AHL:

FRIDAY

FIRST STAR

Cam Atkinson, Springfield

Atkinson had two goals in the final 4:06 of the third period to help the Falcons past St. John's. He also had two assists in the 5-3 victory, and is tied for the team lead with 25 points in 22 games. It was the second four-point game of the season for Atkinson, a sixth-round pick by Columbus in the 2008 NHL Draft. He has nine goals in the past 10 games and 13 tallies on the season, which is tied for second in the AHL. Atkinson had back-to-back 30-goal campaigns for Boston College before netting 36 between Springfield and Columbus in 2011-12 -- his first season as a professional.

A second-round pick in 2010, Zucker leads the team with 11 goals and is second with 18 points. Defenseman Justin Schultz (Edmonton, signed as free agent in 2012) had two assists for the Barons.

Miele, the 2011 Hobey Baker Award winner, signed as an undrafted free agent with Phoenix in April of last year. He is now second on the Pirates with 16 points in 18 games.

AHL extends test of new icing rule

Tuesday, 11.20.2012 / 2:50 PM / AHL Update

NHL.com

The American Hockey League announced Tuesday the league's Board of Governors has voted to continue the current test of AHL Rule 82 (“Icing”) until the resumption of play in the National Hockey League, at which time it will be reconsidered by the AHL Board.

At the request of the NHL, the AHL Board of Governors in June approved a test of a variation of Rule 82 that, in the event of a potential icing violation, completes the play should a defending player be the first to reach the end zone faceoff dots and provided the puck will cross the goal line at that point.

The test of the rule, known as hybrid icing, had originally been in effect until Nov. 19, at which time the Board was to consider its continuation.

The current NHL rule requires the puck to be touched by a player before icing is called.

FRIDAY

FIRST STAR

Eric Tangradi, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

Tangradi had a hat trick in a 3-1 victory for the Penguins against Bridgeport. A second-round pick by Anaheim in 2007 who was traded to Pittsburgh in the Ryan Whitney-for-Chris Kunitz swap, Tangradi has spent the past three seasons shuttling between Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and the parent club. He has just one goal in 40 NHL games, but has been productive at the AHL level and remains one of the franchise's top forward prospects. The 23-year-old has nine goals in 15 AHL contests this season -- he had 33 in 79 games in the previous two seasons combined.
