Dan Fritsche has been one of the few bright spots on an otherwise dreadful Syracuse Crunch team this year, and now he's being recognized by the AHL for his efforts.
Fritsche will skate for PlanetUSA after potting eight goals and tallying 11 assists in 31 games for Syracuse. The 2010 AHL All-Star Game will take place on Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. in Portland, Maine.
This marks the first time since 2006-07 that Syracuse has sent just one player to the All-Star Game. Filip Novak was the lone representative that season, as the Crunch wound up missing the post season.
