- On Monday, the Dakota Jackalopes activated C Tanner Brooks from the injured list. Shortly before the All-Star break, Brooks suffered an upper-body injury. Although the injury initially did not seem that serious, Brooks wound up missing over three weeks. As the Jackalopes had an available roster spot, they did not need to make a compensating move to activate Brooks.
- Also on Monday, the Hershey Bliss‘ CHL affiliate in Milwaukee placed LW Karl Gjovik on the injured list. Gjovik exited in the first period of Sunday’s 3-1 win over Cleveland after being upended on a devastating check, and did not return. He is expected to miss at least two weeks. To replace Gjovik, Milwaukee signed F Jerry Cazenovia to a short-term contract.
- On Wednesday, the Hamilton Pistols activated C Marco Venezio from the injured list. The veteran center missed 10 games with a lower=body injury suffered just before the All-Star break. In order to make room for Venezio, the Pistols reassigned C Hilliard Macy to their CHL affiliate in Oshawa, and released F Bobby Warner from Oshawa.
- Wednesday was the trading deadline. The following trades were consummated at the deadline:
- The Michigan Gray Wolves traded RW Gordon Lunsford to the Boston Badgers for RW Rory Socarra. (More details here.) After the trade, Boston demoted RW Felix Delorme to their CHL affiliate in Hartford, and recalled F Jacques Bacon from Hartford.
- The Gray Wolves traded LW Misha Petronov, F Cary Estabrook, and D Brandon Arrowood to the New York Night for LW Flynn Danner, F Henry Constantine, and D Anson Brank. (More details here.) After the trade, Michigan demoted LW Fendrick Scanlan to their CHL affiliate in Cleveland, and New York promoted RW Harris Wondolowski from their affiliate in Utah.
- The Dakota Jackalopes traded D Victor Addison to Boston in exchange for D Jackson Creed. After the trade, the Badgers demoted D Bjorn Tollefson to their minor-league affiliate in Hartford.
- Michigan traded C Warren Marlow to the Quebec Tigres in exchange for C Phil Miller, LW Carl Bleyer, and a 1st-round draft pick. (More details here.) After the trade, the Gray Wolves released F Caleb Moulton. The Tigres demoted C Dwight Flynn to their CHL affiliate in Halifax, and signed F Tim Daisey to a minor-league deal.
- On Saturday, the Anchorage Igloos recalled RW Jean Pierre Fleury from their CHL affiliate in Minnesota. The Igloos demoted Fleury to Minnesota during the All-Star break, and he played brilliantly there, recording 19 points in 12 games, including the CHL’s first-ever five-goal game. To make room for Fleury, the Igloos reassigned RW Lionel LaNeige to Minnesota.
The following transactions occurred during the All-Star break:
- The Anchorage Igloos demoted RW Jean Pierre Fleury and G Wendall Cantillon to their CHL affiliate in Minnesota and called up RW Lionel LaNeige and G Curt Freeze from Minnesota. Fleury has struggled badly this year, recording only 2 points in 20 games, and has been a healthy scratch in many recent games. Cantillon has posted a 2-4-2 record with a 4.04 GAA as the Igloos’ backup netminder this season. The 22-year-old LaNeige makes his SHL debut; he has recorded 17 points (8 goals, 9 assists) in 32 games with Minnesota this year. Freeze, a longtime Anchorage prospect, has gone 5-11-2 with a 2.59 GAA and a .905 save percentage so far this seaosn.
- The Boston Badgers sent F Jacques Bacon and D Jackson Creed to their affiliate in Hartford, and recalled RW Felix Delorme and D Brett Stolte from Hartford. Bacon, a veteran who signed as a free agent in the offseason, has appeared in only 7 games for Boston and has yet to record a point. The Badgers are hoping that Delorme, nephew of Quebec coach Martin Delorme, can provide a spark for their stagnant offense. Delorme was a starter in the CHL All-Star Game, and has recorded 10 goals and 17 assists so far this season. The Badgers called up Creed from Hartford two and a half weeks ago; he played in 6 games and recorded an assist. Stolte, another CHL All-Star, has produced 12 goals and 13 assists so far this year.
- The Dakota Jackalopes demoted D Geoff Moultrie and promoted D Brady Prussian. Moultrie recorded 2 goals and a -2 rating in 14 games for Dakota this season; the team hopes to get him more regular playing time with their affiliate in Idaho. Prussian has produced 26 points (14 goals, 12 assists) and a +13 rating with Idaho on the year.
- The Hamilton Pistols demoted D Torrey Ashmont and promoted D Russ Klemmer. Ashmont is a rookie who has struggled for ice time with the Pistols, appearing in only 9 games. He figures to start regularly with the team’s Oshawa affiliate. Klemmer, meanwhile, was a CHL All-Star; his 22 assists placed him in the league’s top ten.
- The Hershey Bliss demoted F Anton Lapointe and promoted RW James Clay. Lapointe, a capable defensive forward, has struggled to produce offensively at the SHL level; so far this year, he has produced two assists in 9 games. Clay, another CHL All-Star, led Hershey’s Milwaukee affiliate with 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists).
- The Kansas City Smoke demoted G Dennis Wampler and promoted G Eric Middleton. Kansas City’s 3.79 GAA is second-worst in the SHL, and Wampler (3-8-1, 4.06 GAA, .882 save percentage) has contributed to those woes. Middleton, an 18-year-old rookie, has thrived with the Smoke’s affiliate in Omaha, going 8-6-3 with a 2.06 GAA and a .929 save percentage.
- The Michigan Gray Wolves demoted RW Kelvin Starkey and F Cary Estabrook and promoted LW Fendrick Scanlan and RW Steve Brandon. The offensively-challenged Wolves shook up their forward depth, swapping out Starkey (1 goal in 24 games) and Estabrook (no points in 10 games) for the top two scorers (and All-Stars) with their Cleveland affiliate, Scanlan (13 goals, 10 assists) and Brandon (12 games, 10 assists).
- The New York Night demoted G Corey Franklin-Lee and recalled G Sherman Carter. This is the reverse of the transaction New York made two weeks earlier, when they sent Carter to their affiliate in Utah in order to regain his form and confidence. Carter went 4-2-1 with a 1.98 GAA and a .926 save percentage in Utah, while Franklin-Lee went 1-2-0 with a 3.00 GAA and a .925 save percentage in the Big Apple.
- The Quebec Tigres demoted C Phil Miller and promoted C Dwight Flynn. The veteran Miller has failed to produce in Quebec this season, with a mere two assists and a -10 rating in 27 games. Flynn, meanwhile, has produced at an All-Star level with Halifax this year, including 16 goals, 21 assists, and a +3 rating.
- The Saskatchewan Shockers signed D Kjell Hanson to a minor-league contract. The Shockers found themselves with a short minor-league roster after calling up D Pierre Chappelle and C Trent Harlow as injury replacements just before the All-Star break, and Hanson will help fill the void. The 24-year-Hanson started the year in the Kansas City organization, but the Smoke released him the week before the break.
- The Washington Galaxy demoted D Shane Gladchuk and promoted D Morris Starling. The rebuilding Galaxy wanted to give Starling, a CHL All-Star with Baltimore, some ice time at the SHL level. He led the with 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists). Gladchuk appeared in 12 games with Washington, notching 3 assists and a -8 rating.
In the first two CHL All-Star Games, the home team had come away with the win. With this year’s contest taking place at Hartford’s Aetna Center, the East was hoping that history would repeat itself. Unfortunately, the Western squad had other ideas. They broke the game open with a four-goal eruption in the second period, and wound up cruising to a 7-2 win.
“I’ve coached every one of these, and each time is a different experience,” said East coach Jeffrey Marsh. “This time, we got the experience of what it feels like to get run over by a Mack truck.”
The most critical stretch of the game was in the middle of the second period, when the West scored three times in a three-minute span. The game was competitive through the first period, when the score stood 2-1 in the West’s favor. The teams traded goals early in the second, with Idaho Spuds LW Terry Cresson striking first and Hartford Harpoons RW Felix Delorme answering a few minutes later. Then came the West’s big run.
Milwaukee Hogs C Yegor Nestorov got things going by going five-hole on Oshawa Drive G Hector Orinoco a few seconds shy of the the nine-minute mark. A minute and a half later, Delorme coughed up the puck to Cresson on a bad pass in the neutral zone. Cresson found Utah Owls D George “Brain” Brinson, who got Orinoco to commit down low, then went high to find the twine for a three-goal lead. Just over a minute after that, Spuds D Brady Prussian fired a shot from near the blue line that beat a screened Orinoco. Suddenly, a 3-2 game was 6-2, and the West had control of the game from there.
“That was the game right there, absolutely,” said West coach Gilbert McCoyne. “We felt the ice tilting in our direction, and we decided to keep the hammer down and take advantage of that. And we did.”
McCoyne also praised his team for spreading the offensive load around. “I loved the way that all three lines and all of our D pairings were engaged and involved on offense,” the coach said. Each of the West’s seven goals was scored by a different player.
Hogs D Conrad van Rijn received All-Star MVP honors for recording a most unusual achievement: a Gordie Howe hat trick (that is, a goal, an assist, and a fight.) van Rijn got the fight out of the way first, dropping the mitts with Halifax Atlantics D Axel Borgstrom early in the second period. Less than two minutes after he got out of the box, van Rijn got the primary assist for setting up Nestorov’s goal. Then, in the third period, van Rijn redirected a shot past the East’s backup netminder, Eugene Looney of the Cleveland Centurions, to complete the feat.
“I don’t know what kind of maniac gets into a fight in the All-Star game,” said McCoyne, “but at least Connie went on to get the Gordie. Good for him!”
van Rijn, who was reportedly unaware of his accomplishment until the game ended, received a sailboat from Morris Yachts, a Maine-based company. “It is a beautiful boat,” said the Milwaukee defenseman. “I want to sail it after the season, when the weather is more warm.”
The day after the SHL’s All-Star Game, their minor league will be holding its third annual All-Star contest. The game will take place at the Aetna Center, home of the Hartford Harpoons. The rosters for the game, along with each player’s current stats, are below.

Does hockey run in the blood? There are plenty of examples of family acts in NHL history: the Sutter brothers, Gordie Howe and his sons, Bobby and Brett Hull, and many others. The SHL doesn’t have any of those… yet. But there are three CHL players who are working hard and hoping to join their relatives in the big time.
Arguably, Virginia Rhinos C Tanner Brooks is the closest of the three to making the leap. The 22-year-old center has been in the CHL since 2017, and he has earned raves for his strong defensive plays. The Rhinos’ parent club, the Saskatchewan Shockers, seriously considered making Brooks their third-line center out of training camp this year. Instead, the Shockers kept him in the minors for another season to develop his offensive game further.
2019 has been a breakout year for Tanner; he’s among the CHL’s top scorers with 15 goals and 10 assists so far. He seems to be on the verge of making the big time, either with Saskatchewan or as an attractive deadline trade piece.
When Tanner does reach the majors, he’ll follow in the footsteps of his older brother, Washington Galaxy LW Charlie Brooks. Charlie is seven years older than Tanner, and he serves as example and inspiration to his little brother. “I wouldn’t be a hockey player today if it wasn’t for Charlie,” Tanner Brooks said. “He taught me how to skate, and he let me tag along with him to the rink when I got older. And he was always teaching me what he knew about the game.”
Charlie has followed Tanner’s career with great interest, and he’s excited to someday take the ice against (or with) his brother. “I think Tanner will be a better player than me,” Charlie said. “He’s taller and stronger, and he’s always been driven to succeed. If he does, I’ll be proud as heck.”
Charlie and Tanner’s parents still live in their childhood home in the Toronto area, but they faithfully attend as many of both brothers’ games as possible each year. “They always come to the same number of games for both of us, so they aren’t playing favorites,” said Tanner. “When I’m playing in Oshawa or Charlie’s in Hamilton, they’re definitely there for those. But they travel to see us too. It’s really great.”
Hartford Harpoons RW Felix Delorme doesn’t have a brother in the SHL, but he has another family connection: his uncle is Quebec Tigres coach Martin Delorme. Felix is only 20, and he was drafted by the Boston Badgers in 2018. He’s off to a strong start this year (13 goals, 8 assists), but likely still a season or two away from his SHL debut. But when he does, he knows he’ll have at least one fan, albeit behind the opposing bench.
Felix grew up in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. His father worked the second shift in a paper mill; due to his late hours, he had few opportunities to teach his son about the game. Fortunately, Uncle Martin was able to step in and help.
Beginning at age 7, Felix began attending his uncle’s summer hockey camps in Montreal. These sessions didn’t always go smoothly. “Uncle Martin always talked about defense and fundamentals, and all I wanted to do was shoot,” Felix admitted. But he did absorb a lot of key lessons about the game, lessons he practiced in the winter playing shinny with his friends.
Martin Delorme believes that his nephew will make the SHL someday. “He was a strong-minded boy, and sometimes we clashed heads,” Martin said. “But he was very determined and confident in himself. Plus he has a great natural talent. I know he will be a good player.”
Martin and Felix text regularly, and they speak via video chat when their schedules allow. Felix fills his uncle in on his latest progress; Martin gives his nephew tips and suggests SHL players to watch. “I hope we can still do this even when we are on enemy teams,” Felix said.
Both Tanner Brooks and Felix Delorme are in different organizations then their SHL relatives. So far, there is only one SHL-CHL family pairing where both members are in the same system. RW Jefferson McNeely is a star for the Washington Galaxy. And his younger brother, D Davis McNeely, plays for the Galaxy’s CHL affiliate, the Baltimore Blue Crabs.
Unlike Brooks and Delorme, the 20-year-old McNeely is not considered a top prospect. Since signing with the Galaxy in 2017, he has generally been relegated to Baltimore’s bottom pairing, and this year he has only 1 assist in 21 games (albeit with a +4 rating).
For Davis, the family connection brings pain as well as pleasure. “Everyone seems to think I only got signed because of Jeff,” said Davis. “I get heckled about it in other cities. ‘Your brother’s better than you!’ and stuff like that. Even here, when I’m slumping, people say, ‘They can’t get rid of him because, well, you know.’ Sometimes I want to go to another team, just so I can prove I deserve to be here.”
Jefferson McNeely vigorously denies that he asked the Galaxy to sign his younger brother. “Davis is his own man, always has been,” said Jefferson. “The Galaxy scouted him and signed him all on their own. I’m glad they did, because he’s a good player. But this idea that I ‘made’ the team sign him is just silly. I don’t have that kind of pull, anyway.”
Davis’ case may be an extreme example, but all three can’t help but he overshadowed by their big-league relatives. For now, Tanner Brooks is still “Charlie’s brother,” and Felix Delorme is still “Martin’s nephew.” But all three of them eagerly await their shot at the SHL spotlight, and the chance to make a name for themselves.
This year, the SHL’s minor league will also be holding an All-Star Game. The game will take place at Waterfront Center, home of the Virginia Rhinos. The rosters for the game, along with each player’s current stats, are below.
