Rookie Texas Stars forward Matt Fraser was among the players named today to play in the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Fraser joins Ivan Vishnevskiy, Brent Krahn, Travis Morin and Francis Wathier among Texas Stars named to All-Star teams in the past.

Fraser is the leading goal scorer on the Stars squad with 16 and ranks second in points at 25. He ranks second overall in the league in goals by a rookie and he is tied for fifth overall in points by a rookie. Fraser’s eight power-play goals are tied for first among rookies and his 115 shots is best among first-year players.

The All-Star game will be played at 7 PM EST on Monday, January 30. Last year's contest was broadcast locally in the Austin area. There is no word yet on whether the game will be broadcast again for Central Texas hockey fans.
