Brendan Warren Named to 2020 Warrior / ECHL All-Star Classic

JACKSONVILLE, FL – The Jacksonville Icemen, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Winnipeg Jets, announced Monday that forward Brendan Warren has been selected to represent the Icemen at the 2020 Warrior/ECHL All-Star Classic presented by Toyota, to be hosted by the Wichita Thunder on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. CT at INTRUST Bank Arena. The game will air LIVE exclusively on NHL Network.

Warren, 22, earns the All-Star selection after posting 12 points (6g, 6a) in 19 games with the Icemen this season.   Warren recorded three points (1g, 2a) in 36 games played last season at the University of Michigan.  The 6-1, 191-pound winger collected 45 points (18g, 27a) in his four seasons with the Wolverines from 2015-2019.  Warren logged 32 points (13 g, 19a) in his 53-game career in the USHL. The Carleton, MI native was selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the third-round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Following the format established last season, the Warrior/ECHL All-Star Classic will feature a 3-on-3 tournament with four teams competing for the top spot. The host Wichita Thunder will make up two of the four teams and face-off against the other two teams made up of All-Star players from the Eastern and Western Conference. These four teams will compete in a 3-on-3 tournament with rally scoring in order to crown a winner. The 2020 Kansas Star Casino/ECHL All-Star Skills Competition will take place in between rounds of the tournament, with results counting towards the cumulative score.
