The American Hockey League announced today that defenseman Calvin de Haan has been selected to represent the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Jan. 29-30.

de Haan, 20, earns a trip to the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic in his first professional season. The Carp, ON native has recorded two goals and seven assists in 29 games with the Sound Tigers. de Haan was the New York Islanders first round pick (ninth overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, and made his NHL debut this season on Dec. 15 against the Dallas Stars.

"It's a great feat for any player, but I'm very honored by this," said de Haan after learning of his selection to the 2012 AHL All-Star roster. "It will be a great opportunity to play with the best players in our league...I'm really looking forward to it."

de Haan is the fourth Sound Tigers defenseman to appear in the AHL All-Star Classic in the last four seasons, following Andrew MacDonald (2009), Dustin Kohn (2010), and Mark Wotton (Eastern Conference Captain, 2011).
