AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey All Star Game Info as well as the Final Month of the Regular Season

The Info is beginning to be released for the AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey League All Star Game that will be taking place on Tuesday Evening at the Dr. Pepper Stars Center in Frisco. This year's format will be a North VS. South Format this year for both the JV Young Guns Game and the Varsity All Star Game. The JV Game will be starting at 6:30 PM & the Varsity will get going at around 8:15 PM as the area's best HS Players will look to show their skills and look to show that they can help their team come playoff time.

Among the highlights for the South Division is Midlothian's Brent Jones who is running away with the Scoring Race with an amazing 64 points in 17 games (a staggering 3.76 PTS Per Game) who in 9 of those games has scored 4 or more points and has not one but 2 7 point nights (11/10 against Mansfield & 12/20 against Garland ISD) which has the ability to crush all sorts of scoring records with 5 games left in the season.

Elsewhere Connor Morrow of Southlake Carroll who was a huge part of getting the Dragons to the USA Hockey HS National Championship Game last season is back as the Dragons are looking to knock off Keller ISD for the #1 Playoff Spot in the Silver Tier South Division, also some other notabilities include 4 players from Dallas Jesuit in Goaltender Brendan Cain, Defensemen Garrett Finney & Forwards Hayden Meshell & Nick Alexander will also be playing in the game as well.

The North Division will have 4 players each from both Allen & Plano West which will be leading in teams being represented this year. But perhaps the player has had the biggest impact is Zach Edwards of Plano East who is helping to carry that team on the offensive side of the puck as no one else has more then 7 goals this season and is a big reason why the Panthers are looking to hold off McKinney ISD, Prosper & Highland Park for 1st Place in the Silver Tier North Division.

At the time of the All Star Game, they will be just 4 games left in the regular season as this will be one of the last chances to take a break from the playoff race before the playoff race will begin to heat up over the final month of the regular season wrapping up on March 1. Not only it will be a chance to show their skills, but look to show that they can help their teams go far when the playoffs get underway on March 5.

If your not fimilar with the AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey League, this would be a great chance to see the best HS Players in the DFW Area.

Here's a look at the Rosters for both the Varsity All Star Game & the JV All Star Game. They will be played at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco (Home of the Texas Tornado) and this game will be longer then a typical league game in AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey League (15 minutes usually, 17 minutes for the All Star Game). Also they will be an intermission after the 2nd period and will go directly to a shootout if the game is tied after regularition and they will also be a pregame team photos that will be taken for both the Varsity All Star & JV Young Guns Game. Finally, each team will 6 alternates in case of injury for either side to take over.

  1. I really like the star games. It is quite interesting but it is a pity that it doesn't work great in team work.
