SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Hamilton Bulldogs forward Corey Locke and San Antonio Rampage forward Joey Tenute have been added to the Canadian roster for the AHL all-star game to take place Jan. 27-28 in Binghamton, N.Y.
Canadian all-stars Ryan O’Byrne of Hamilton and Joel Perrault of San Antonio will miss the event due to recall to their respective National Hockey League affiliates.
Locke, 23, currently leads the Bulldogs in goals (14), assists (18) and points (32) while skating in 37 AHL games. The native of Newmarket, Ont., also led Hamilton with 22 points in 22 games during the 2007 post-season, leading the Bulldogs to their first Calder Cup championship. Locke, who also participated in the 2006 AHL All-Star Classic in Winnipeg, became the franchise’s all-time scoring leader earlier this season and made his NHL debut with Montreal on Jan. 8 versus Chicago.
Tenute, 24, is in his third AHL season and first in San Antonio, where he currently leads the Rampage with 15 goals and ranks second on the team with 28 points in 39 games. A native of Hamilton, Tenute spent the last two seasons with the Hershey Bears, winning a Calder Cup championship in 2006 and returning to the final in 2007.
