Victor Bartley picked up an assist in the West’s 7-6 victory in Monday night’s 2013 AHL All Star Game.

The West got out to a 4-1 lead in the first period thanks to goals from Houston’s Jason Zucker, Texas’s Matt Fraser, Chicago’s Brad Hunt and San Antonio’s Drew Shore.

Bartley assisted on the Fraser goal at 13:25 of the period.

The second period featured the first of three goals from Toronto’s Ryan Hamilton as the East narrowed the deficit to 5-4.

Hamilton scored his second at the 5:41 mark of the third period, but Manchester’s Tyler Toffoli responded with a goal at 7:33. Toffoli then assisted on Trent Whitner of Providence’s equalizer at 17:30.

Hamilton finished his hat trick in dramatic fashion with 11 seconds left to seal the win and take home MVP honors.

Charlotte’s Justin Peters started for the West and had the best stint in net allowing one goal on 13 shots faced. Abbotsford’s Barry Brust let in three during the second period on 16 shots, while Grand Rapids’s Petr Mrazek gave up two on eight shots in the final period.

Questions:

Did you watch the game, and if so what did you think of Bartley’s performance?

Who do you think had the strongest weekend? Pretty hard to argue with Hamilton’s showing.

Any other Admirals you would’ve liked to have seen in the lineup?
