Springfield Thunderbirds forward Alexandre Grenier named to 2018 AHL All-Star Classic”

The team will have only two representatives instead of the three it had last season when the mid-season All-Star festivities were held at Allentown's PPL Center. Brennan and forward Danick Martel have been named All-Stars for 2018. He has had a breakout season with the Phantoms and is tied for third in the AHL and top among the Phantoms with 17 goals.

Taormina, meanwhile, leads all AHL defensemen with 28 points - including two goals - since the start of the 2017-18 campaign. The 18-year-old scored two goals in five games for Finland, tallying a goal in the opener against Canada on December 26 and again versus Slovakia on Saturday.

Grenier, a member of AHL affiliate Springfield, is second on the Thunderbirds with 27 points on eight goals and 19 assists.

Brennan makes his fifth appearance in the AHL All-Star Classic. Each of the league's four divisions will be represented by 12 players. He leads all AHL defenseman with 21 points this season.

In the 2018 AHL All-Star Challenge on January 29, the four teams will participate in a round-robin tournament featuring six games of 10 minutes each, played entirely at 3-on-3.

Rich Brennan, also a defenseman, shares the record of most Classics (6) with two other players but is the only one to have appeared in six-straight.

In addition to T.J. Brennan, Taylor Leier and Jordan Weal, who are both now with the Flyers, represented the Phantoms when they hosted the 2016-17 All-Star Classic.
