KLEINENDORST ADDED TO AHL ALL-STAR COACHING STAFF

SPRINGFIELD, M.A. - American Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews announced today the selection of Kurt Kleinendorst of the Binghamton Senators and Dallas Eakins of the Toronto Marlies to join the coaching staffs for the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic in Atlantic City, N.J., Jan. 29-30.

Kleinendorst will join St. John’s IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge in the Eastern Conference, while Eakins will work with Oklahoma City Barons head coach Todd Nelson on the Western Conference bench.
