WD Sports and Entertainment clients Mike Carcone and Tyson Foerster put their talents on display for the die-hard hockey fans at the 2023 AHL All-Star Game in Laval, Quebec. Both players met in the championship match of the division based 3-on-3 tournament with Carcone’s team Pacific coming away as the champs against Foerster’s team Atlantic.
Carcone tallied four assists over four three-on-three matchups, as the Pacific Division earned their first ever victory in the event with a 1-0 win over the Atlantic Division in the final. Carcone’s four assists led all skaters, while his four total points were tied for fourth in the event behind three of his Pacific Division teammates.
Tyson Foerster impressed the big crowd at Place Bell in Laval when he scored a pair of goals just 42 seconds apart in the first period of the Atlantic Division’s matchup against the North Division. The Atlantic eventually prevailed 4-3 after a crazy 11-round shootout to advance to the Championship game.
The Skills Competition on Sunday saw Foerster hit all four targets on just six attempts in the Accuracy Shooting contest and he also scored in the Breakaway Challenge. Carcone was the first participant out of six to compete in the Fastest Skater event, finishing in second place with a time of 13.282. He trailed only Hershey Bears forward Ethen Frank, who set an AHL All-Star record with a time of 12.915. Carcone’s lap would have also taken first place at this season’s Fastest Skater Competition in the National Hockey League, as well as in five of the last six NHL Fastest Skater events. He also competed in the RONA Accuracy Shooting and Upper Deck Breakaway Relay challenges, as the Western Conference fell to the Eastern Conference by a count of 16 to 10.
