Every year the American Hockey League hosts an All-Star game just like the NHL. The news broke on Wednesday, February 8 that the 2013 Dunkin Donuts All-Star festivities would be held at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

The American Hockey League is excited to be returning to one of its founding cities for the 2013 All-Star Classic,” AHL president and CEO David Andrews said in a statement. “Providence has been part of the fabric of our league since our first season in 1936, and the Providence Bruins organization has been a cornerstone for the last two decades. We’re looking forward to showcasing our brightest stars to capacity crowds at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center and to an international television audience.”(via NESN.com)
