Derek Meech added to AHL All-Star Classic Roster
The St. John\'s IceCaps, in conjunction with the American Hockey League, have announced that defenceman Derek Meech has been added to the Eastern Conference squad at the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic this weekend in Providence, RI.
The St. John's IceCaps, in conjunction with the American Hockey League, have announced that defenceman Derek Meech has been added to the Eastern Conference squad at the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic this weekend in Providence, RI.

In 36 games with St. John's this season, the Winnipeg native has recorded 18 points (3G, 15A) and leads the club in power play points with 11. All three of Meech’s goals have been game-winners, also a team-high.

This is the second AHL All-Star Classic appearance for the 28-year-old rearguard, who was selected to participate in the 2007 festivities at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto.

For his career, Meech has played in 345 AHL games with the IceCaps and Grand Rapids Griffins, tallying 121 points (30G, 91A) and 276 penalty minutes. Meech has also suited up in 128 NHL contests with the Detroit Red Wings and Winnipeg Jets, notching 16 points (4G, 12A) and 43 penalty minutes.

Zach Redmond, who was originally selected to play in the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic, will miss the two-day event. The sophomore defenceman is currently on recall to the IceCaps NHL club, the Winnipeg Jets.

A limited number of individual tickets remain available for the 2013 Pepsi AHL All-Star Skills Competition at 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 27 and the 2013 AHL All-Star Game at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 28.
