Lettieri Headed to AHL All-Star ClassicJan 21, 2020
The American Hockey League announced today that Wolf Pack forward Vinni Lettieri has been named to the Atlantic Division roster for the upcoming 2020 AHL All-Star Classic presented by Ontario International Airport.
Lettieri will take the place of Igor Shesterkin, who will be unavailable for the event.
Lettieri, a third-year pro out of the University of Minnesota, leads the Wolf Pack team in points and goals, with 18 goals and 17 assists for 35 points in 42 games. The 5-11, 191-pound native of Excelsior, MN also has put 128 shots on net, which is tied for fifth-most in the AHL.
The 24-year-old Lettieri, who was signed as a free agent by the parent New York Rangers March 27, 2017, led the Wolf Pack team in goals in both of his first two full pro seasons. As a rookie in 2017-18, Lettieri tallied 23 goals and 13 assists for 36 points in 55 games, and he matched that goal total last season, scoring at a point-per-game pace in AHL action with 23 goals and 25 assists for 48 points in 48 games.
Lettieri has also seen action in 46 NHL games with the Rangers since turning pro, posting two goals and six assists for eight points.
