The Central Hockey League played their annual All-Star game on Wednesday night, January 12. The CHL used the old-school NHL format with the 2009-10 Playoff champion Rapid City Rush hosting the rest of the league’s all-stars. The CHL All-Stars beat out the Rush 11-6.
The Ontario Hockey League had it’s mark all over this game with six OHL Alumni on the Rapid City Rush and two on the CHL All-Stars. One OHL grad in particular had an amazing game. Jason Dale was chosen the MVP of the CHL All-Stars as he popped two goals and added five assists.
