BUFFALO – Rochester Americans defenseman Brayden McNabb and captain Kevin Porter were named to the 2013 AHL Western Conference All-Star team on Thursday.
McNabb, a recent healthy scratch, wasn’t invited to NHL training camp despite playing 25 games with the Sabres last season. The 21-year-old prospect has three goals, 19 points and a minus-1 rating in 36 AHL contests.
Meanwhile, Porter, who’s currently on waivers, has 11 goals, 30 points and a plus-4 rating in 37 games.
It’s possible the 26-year-old center, a veteran of 163 NHL games, could get claimed. He spent the last two seasons with Colorado.
The game will be played Jan. 28 in Providence.
