Rangers prospect Bruce Graham will represent the organization at the 2007 Rbk Hockey
ECHL All-Star Game after being added to the American Conference roster on Thursday.
Graham, 21, was named to the All-Star event as a replacement for Charlotte Checkers teammate Mark Lee, a defenseman who was called up to the Hartford Wolf Pack and will not be available for next week's All-Star event.
Hosted by the Idaho Steelheads at Qwest Arena in Boise, Idaho, the 15th Annual ECHL All-Star Game will take place at 9:05 ET on Wednesday, and the 10th Annual ECHL All-Star Skills Competition will be at 9:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
Selected by the Rangers in the second round (51st overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Graham signed with the Blueshirts on Oct. 3, 2005, after a standout junior career with Moncton in the QMJHL. He is currently tied for second in the ECHL with a team-leading 21 goals and is second on the Checkers with 32 points in 32 games.
Graham is the third Rangers prospect to be named to a minor-pro league's All-Star Game this week. On Tuesday, Daniel Girardi and Ryan Callahan
were selected to play in the American Hockey League's All-Classic at the end of this month in Toronto.
