@ WINDSOR, ONT:

    Former Red Wing centers Steve Yzerman
and Adam Graves were the honorary captains
for the annual OHL All-Star Game at Windsor's
new WFCU Centre Wednesday night.
    It was quite the 25-hours for Windsor
native Graves, whose #9 sweater was retired to the Madison Square Garden rafters
Tuesday night by the New York Rangers.
    Gravey is now part of the Rangers front office and Yzerman is VP of the Red Wings,
so Stevie used this game as a close-to-home scouting trip.
    The host Western Conference managed a 3-all tie after the 1st-Per, but after
that the OHL-East took over to post an 11-6 win. The Eastern Conference squad
blew the game open by outscoring Team West 5-2 in the 3rd-Per.
    Team East won the game for a fourth consecutive year.
    Cody Hodgson of the Brampton Battalion led the attack. Hodgson scored the
3-goal Hat Trick and added a pair of assists for the winners. Hodgson had a goal
in each period. Ethan Werek of the Kingston Frontenacs and Alex Hutchings of the
Barrie Colts had two goals each flor the East.
    Justin DiBenedetto of the Sarnia Sting scored half the West's goals by also
having a Hat Trick. OHL leading goal-scorer (41) John Tavares of the London Knights
was limited to just one assist. Plymouth Whalers CEN/Capt. Chris Terry was held
pointless while skating for the West, but had an even plus-minus rating. Two players
from the OHL-leading and host team Windsor Spitfires got on the Team West scoresheet
as Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist while Greg Memisz scored a goal.
    The East out-shot the West 55-38. With only three total penalties called each
team had a power play goal.
    The attendance figure was not immediately announced.
    Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland was the keynote speaker at Wednesday's All-
Star banquet.
