NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NWHL will host the league's inaugural All-Star Weekend on Jan. 24. The weekend will consist of three separate events, and conclude with the All-Star Game in Buffalo, N.Y. at the Harborcenter.
Janine Weber (Innsbruck, Austria) was selected to be a part of the 14-woman roster on Dec. 10 by Team Knight Captain, Hilary Knight.
"I'm really excited to play with and against many of the best players in the game. It's an honor to play in the league's first All-Star Game and I'm looking forward to playing on Hilary's team with many of my former teammates," Weber said.
The All-Star Weekend will begin on Jan. 22 with an All-Star Game Dinner, hosted by the NWHL Foundation at 6:30 p.m. There will be a Skate With The Stars at 8:45 p.m. on Jan. 23 at the Harborcenter, where fans have the chance to skate with the All-Star players. The weekend will conclude with the All-Star Game at 2:00 p.m. on Jan. 24 at the Harborcenter.
Weber is one of four players who was selected from her NWHL team, the New York Riveters. Weber has played in 13 games for the Riveters and owns nine points on three goals and six assists. Weber also has scored one shorthanded goal during the 2015-16 season.
Before joining the NWHL, Weber played one season in the Candaian Women's Hockey League (CWHL) for the Boston Blades and recorded seven points on three goals and four assists in 17 games. Weber also was the first European player to score a game-winning goal in overtime to capture the Clarkson Cup (CWHL).
At the conclusion of the weekend, the jerseys from the game will be auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the Denna Laing Fund.
