PRINCETON, N.J. — The Adirondack Thunder will have one representative at the annual CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic this year, forward Ty Loney.
Loney currently leads the team with 29 points on 16 goals and 13 assists in 26 games this season. He also ranks second in the league with seven power-play goals and leads the team with 11 points on the power-play this season, with an additional four assists.
