Springfield, Mass. - For the second straight season, Utica Comets forward Reid Boucher and the North Division All-Stars have won the AHL All-Star Challenge.

The North went 3-1 in four games during the 3-on-3 tournament. This included two victories back-to-back over the Atlantic Division, the latter coming in a shootout in order to take home the title at the MassMutual Center, home of the Springfield Thunderbirds, Monday.

Boucher, the Comets lone representative, participated in the All-Star Classic for the second straight year and second time in his career. He contributed two goals in the North Division's four games, including the game-winner against the Central in their second game.

Toronto Marlies forward Trevor Moore scored the championship clinching goal against the Atlantic, in the fourth round of the shootout, after the title game went scoreless through regulation.

Beleville Senators forward Drake Batherson was named MVP of the night as he scored five times for the North Division in their championship run.
