Former Merrimack goaltender Collin Delia was named to  2019 AHL All-Star Game on Thursday.

The AHL All-Star Game, which has taken on the NHL’s 3-on-3 tournament format, will take place on Jan. 28 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass.

The round-robin tournament features six games of 10 minutes, played entirely at 3-on-3. The two teams with the best records at the end of the round-robin will face off for the championship, a six-minute game also played at 3-on-3.

Delia started 16 games for the Rockford IceHogs prior to getting recalled by the Chicago Blackhawks on Dec. 17. In those 16 starts, Delia posted a 7-5-4 record with a 2.34 goals-against average and .933 save percentage.

Delia, at the time of his recall, ranked first in the AHL in save percentage, second in total saves and third in goals-against average.

The 24-year-old is 3-0 this season as a start for the Blackhawks with a 1.66 GAA and a .957 save percentage. In five NHL starts over the last two seasons, Delia is 4-1 with a 2.51 GAA and a .933 save percentage.
