For the second-straight season, forward Sergei Shirokov will represent the Manitoba Moose at the AHL All-Star game.
Shirokov was chosen today by the league to compete in the game Jan. 31 in Hershey, Pa.
The selection is richly deserved, Moose coach Claude Noel said this morning.
“He deserves to go,” Noel said.h “He’s been real good, played real well and has been hot lately. I think he’s invested in his career.”
Shirokov scored in Saturday’s 4-3 overtime win over Hershey, giving him a five-game goals streak.
As the Moose’s leading scorer so far this season with 15 goals and 30 points, Shirokov has been on fire since just before Christmas, with nine goals in the last nine games and a 10-game points streak heading into Thursday night’s home game against Milwaukee.
