UTICA- The wait is over and the AHL All-Star weekend is upon the Utica area. This is the second time in the past three years where Utica has welcomed home the All-Star game.
On Friday, Turning Stone Casino & Resort, a sponsor for this weekends All-Star Game, welcomed fans, players, and executives to join the “kick-off” to All-Star weekend.
“For me it really is an honor to be able to host [the game] this weekend,” said Robert Eche, President of the Utica Comets. “Especially when you have the chance to show off your venue like the Adirondack Bank Center. I am really looking forward to it.”

In 2016 Turning Stone was a sponsor of All-Star weekend. Now in 2018, they will be the main sponsor once again.

“It is a great setting at Turning Stone,” said Chris Nikolis, AHL Marketing Vice President. “They have been a great host for us in the past and have treated us very well.”

At Friday’s press conference, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente spoke highly of his county. “You know big cities can’t pull it off like we can,” said Picente. “It’s because we can do it, and we just did it, and now we are going to do it again.”

All-Star weekend is scheduled for Sunday and Monday.
