The ECHL announced Tuesday that Utah Grizzlies forward Erik Bradford will represent the team at the 2017 ECHL all-star game.

The game will air live on NHL Network on Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. MST from the Glens Falls Civic Center in Glens Falls, N.Y.

Bradford has three goals and 17 assists for 20 points in 19 games since being acquired from Toledo on November 14. He is the Grizzlies leading scorer since joining the team.

"It is a privilege to be able to play in an All-Star game," said Grizzlies coach and general manager Tim Branham said. "Erik has done extremely well since joining our team and he deserves this opportunity."

Bradford had eight assists in four games on the team's just completed 3-1 road trip; including a four-assist game in Utah's 5-3 win over Missouri on Wednesday.

The 2017 ECHL all-star game will feature the host Adirondack Thunder taking on the ECHL All-Stars in a non-traditional format featuring 5-on-5, 4-on-4, and 3-on-3 play, as well as a Skills Competition (Puck Relay, Hardest Shot, Fastest Skater) to highlight the talents of both teams.
