Rodney chosen as Canadian All-Star

Bryan Rodney has been chosen as a Canadian All-Star and will represent Albany at the American Hockey League All-Star Classic in January.
A native of London, Ontario and a fifth-year pro, Rodney has tallied nine (2-7) points in 21 games with the Rats this season.
Rodney, 25, has played in 18 games with Carolina over the past two seasons, including 10 this campaign, where he’s contributed five assists.
Rodney is the ninth River Rat defenseman to be selected with the honor, including current assistant coach Geordie Kinnear, who was chosen to represent Albany in three All-Star games (1995-96, 1997-98 and 1998-99). Kinnear didn’t play in the 1998-99 game because of illness.
The Rats blue liner to compete in an AHL All-Star game was Raymond Giroux in 2002-03.
