American Conference 10, National Conference 9, SO.

The ECHL All-Star Game went to a shootout for the first time in the history of the event.

The unabated scoring was typical of an all-star game, and David Walker and Peter Lenes chipped in with one goal each. Greg Hogeboom, the third Reign player selected, was held scoreless.

Walker gets credit for the quote of the night. Asked about the lack of hitting (there were no checks to speak of), the National Conference captain said, “it’s like playing hockey in Europe.”
