This is one of the most prestigious events in the AHL and we look forward to hosting this major event at Place Bell. We are very grateful to our fans and partners for their loyalty during this difficult time. We also want to thank the American Hockey League for their confidence and their collaboration on this project”, said France Margaret Bélanger President, Sports and Entertainment at Groupe CH.
“The Laval Rocket and Place Bell have done an outstanding job preparing to host our All-Star Classic festivities this year,” said Scott Howson, American Hockey League President and CEO. “But with the event only six weeks away and faced with ongoing challenges pertaining to health and safety, international travel, and group gatherings, the League and the Rocket organization feel it is in everybody’s best interests to postpone the event. We remain committed to bringing the All-Star Classic to Laval.”
The AHL All-Star Classic includes the traditional Skills Competition, the All-Star Challenge and the AHL Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Ceremony.
