For a second-straight year, the contest will feature a “border battle” format, which will see Canadian all-stars taking on their American counterparts.
The line-ups will be comprised of skaters and goalies from the SIJHL’s six-member clubs based on their citizenship, as well as by their respective efforts on the ice through the first two-and-a-half months of the 2018-19 regular season.
Last year’s event in Eveleth, Mn. saw Team U.S.A. skate to a 5-2 victory over Team Canada.
This will mark the sixth all-star game in league history of the league.
The rosters, coaching staffs, and officials will be announced in the coming weeks.
