The Laval Rocket announced that Alex Belzile will make his second AHL All Star Classic appearance at Place Bell this weekend.

Justin Barron was originally chosen but will not be available for the event as he remains on the NHL roster of the Montreal Canadiens. Belzile, the Laval captain, was sent down during the break and will return to the Rocket lineup this weekend when they play in Toronto against the Marlies on Friday and Saturday.

Belzile has 13 goals and 12 assists in 29 games this season. He has six goals and three assists in his last four AHL games. He will join Anthony Richard as the two representatives of the hometown Rocket.

The Skills Competition will go on Sunday evening while the All Star Classic tournament will be held on Monday night. It is the first time that the AHL All Star Classic will be held in Quebec.
