The stars will be out in Providence next January.
The AHL announced Wednesday that the Providence Bruins have been selected to host the 2013 Dunkin' Donuts All-Star Classic. The festivities will be held Jan. 25-28 in Providence.
The main event of the weekend, the All-Star Game itself, will be held on Monday, Jan. 28 at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. The city will also host the skills competition the night before, as well as the AHL Hall of Fame Induction and Awards ceremony on Jan. 28.
"The American Hockey League is excited to be returning to one of its founding cities for the 2013 All-Star Classic," AHL president and CEO David Andrews said in a statement. "Providence has been part of the fabric of our league since our first season in 1936, and the Providence Bruins organization has been a cornerstone for the last two decades. We're looking forward to showcasing our brightest stars to capacity crowds at the Dunkin' Donuts Center and to an international television audience."
