Howard, Ericsson named to AHL All-Star team
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Grand Rapids Griffins goaltender Jimmy Howard and defenseman Jonathan Ericsson have been selected to play for the AHL All-Star Team at the 2008 AHL All-Star Classic, which will be held Jan. 27-28 at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, N.Y. Both players were chosen to participate in their first AHL All-Star Classic by a committee of the league’s coaches.

Howard, 23, was recently named the AHL Goaltender of the Month for December, after posting the best numbers of his career for a calendar month with a 1.72 goals against average and a 0.939 save percentage. For the season, he shows a 13-14-2 record with a 2.56 GAA and a 0.913 save percentage, ranking among the league leaders with 1,756 minutes played (3rd), 789 saves (5th), two shutouts (T5th) and 13 wins (T8th).

The 23-year-old Ericsson, a native of Karlskrona, Sweden, is developing into one of the top young defensemen in hockey, despite having played primarily as a center until three seasons ago. Now in his second season in North America, he ranks among the Griffins’ leaders with five goals (T7th), 11 assists (5th), 16 points (T4th), a plus-two rating (4th) and four power play goals (T3rd). His goal, point and power play goal totals lead Grand Rapids’ defensemen, while his assists and plus-minus rating place second among the team’s blueliners.
