My ballot is in

I just turned in my ballot for the All-Star Game, which is Jan. 23 in Colorado. The game will feature ECHL stars against the host Eagles, so I couldn't vote for any Colorado players (and I would have).

I voted for ...

Goaltender Ryan Zapolski of South Carolina, defensemen Denny Urban of Reading and Paul Mara of Ontario, and forwards Casey Pierro-Zabotel of Gwinnett, C.J. Stretch of Ontario and Brandon Marino of Fort Wayne.
