Sims won't be filling in

Justin A. Cohn

For those who thought that Allen's part in the brawl with Laredo -- check out the video above -- would mean that the Americans' coach, Dwight Mullins, wouldn't be able to coach in the All-Star Game: Sorry.

The league has informed me that, although suspensions have yet to be announced from Sunday's brawling, Mullins will be able to coach in the All-Star Game at Prescott Valley, AZ.

That means Fort Wayne coach Al Sims, whose team is now atop the CHL, won't be filling in.
