The NAPHL staff will then select the teams, with additional input and consultation from Coordinator of Player Personnel Craig Barnett and the NAPHL Event Scouting System.
“We had an overwhelming and positive response from last year’s inaugural All-Star Game from everyone involved, which made the decision to continue it this season an easy one,” said NAHL and NAPHL Commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “The game will showcase some of the best 16 and under hockey talent in the Nation and we continue to maintain our commitment to our teams that each club has fair representation at the event based upon their performance to date.”
