It was an all star cast on the ice at the 2016 Greater Metro Hockey League All-Star game when teams from around the province sent their best players for a game with an international flair held at the Tottenham Community Centre arena in Tottenham on Jan. 12.
The league, which has a high number of foreign players in its ranks, divided the ice with Team Canada, featuring Canadian-born players on one bench, and Team World, featuring players from several different countries on the opposing bench.
Around 42 players represented their teams and were joined by coaches and team owners for the event.
A full complement of GMHL fans turned out to cheer on the teams.
Representing local teams, forward Matt Fischer and goalie Denny Dubblestyne represented the Tottenham Steam.
From the Alliston Coyotes, forwards, Viacheslav and Nils Niklasson, were on the ice playing for Team World.
After the first period there was an All-Star shoot-out that added some thrills to the game.
The second period intermission featured a skills competition.
It was a good break for the players to have chance to play along side other GMHL members who they normally only see in a face to face battle on the ice.
