CAMPER NAMED TO 2012 ALL-STAR CLASSIC TEAM
Rookie Will Represent Eastern Conference in Atlantic City
Providence, RI – The Providence Bruins, in their 20th season in the American Hockey League, today announced that leading scorer Carter Camper has been named to the Eastern Conference All-Star roster for the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic. The event is scheduled for January 29-30 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.
Camper paces Providence with eight goals and 23 points in 34 games this season. The rookie forward has contributed seven multiple-point games and a team-high 15 assists this year.
Undrafted, Camper made his professional debut with the Providence Bruins on April 8 and recorded his first professional point, an assist, the following night in Springfield. The 23 year-old signed an entry-level contract with Boston on April 7.
Camper is a four-year product of Miami University Ohio, where as co-captain in 2010-11 he set collegiate career-highs in assists (38) and points (57). His 38 assists ranked him third nationally among college hockey players. A Hobey Baker Award finalist in 2010-11, Camper was named CCHA Scholar-Athlete of the Year and helped guide Miami to a 23-10-6 record and an NCAA Tournament appearance.
In 156 career collegiate games, Camper had 69 114=183 totals. The 5’9”, 173-pound native of Rocky River, Ohio finished his career second on Miami’s all-time points list and assists list. In his four years at Miami, the RedHawks made four NCAA Tournament appearances, two trips to the Frozen Four (2009 and 2010) and lost to Boston University in the 2009 National Championship. Before Miami, he played for the Lincoln Stars of the USHL.
The P-Bruins open their 2012 docket at The Dunk this Friday in a 7:05 p.m. tilt with the Portland Pirates for “Kids T-Shirt Night.” T-shirts are free to the first 1,000 kids 12 and under.
