AHL All-Star Classic TicketsThe AHL traces its history back to a merger between two leagues, the Canadian-American and the International Hockey Leagues, in 1936. It actually started out as the IAHL, but, by 1940, the league was firmly established with its current name. The AHL has long been one of the top developmental leagues in the world, sending many players and coaches to continue on the NHL. The AHL All-Star Classic shows off the skills of some of the best up-and-coming players in the world. Since 1995, most of the players selected for the AHL All-Star Classic have gone on to have successful careers in the NHL. The AHL All-Star Classic includes a skills competition and a 3-on-3 round-robin tournament. The tournament includes six games that last 10 minutes. The top two teams then face off in a six-minute, 3-on-3 game to determine the champion. The 3-on-3 event is a fast-paced game that really shows off the speed and scoring skills of the players involved. The All-Star Classic is a great showcase of skill and a very fan-friendly event.
