Photos & Video: Rempal, Walker at the 2019 AHL All-Star Classic - LA Kings Insider

Forward Sheldon Rempal and defenseman Sean Walker represented the Ontario Reign at the 2019 AHL All-Star Classic in Springfield, MA this past weekend. The two players competed in Skills Competition on Sunday, helping lead the Western Conference to a 17-14 win over the Eastern Conference, as well as the All-Star Challenge on Monday, as the Pacific Division went 1-2 across their three games played. It was the first All-Star experience for both players and both had positive outings –

Rempal helped his team to a goal in the Puck Control Relay, scored on 3-of-5 shots in the Rapid Fire event and tallied four points (1-3-4) from three games in the All-Star Challenge.

Walker helped his team win the lowest overall time in the Fastest Skater event, scored on his attempt in the Breakaway Relay, and scored a goal in all three games during the All-Star Challenge.

Ontario will host the next edition of the event, the 2020 AHL All-Star Classic. READ MORE HERE on the Reign hosting the event, the first time it will be held in the State of California.
