ALL-STAR SITE, OPPONENTS ANNOUNCED: The AHL announced Tuesday morning that it will hold its all-star event in St. John's, Newfoundland, with a twist: A team of AHL all-stars will face Sweden's Farjestad BK during the NHL's Olympic break. There will be a skills contest as usual on the first night, Feb. 11, with the game to follow the next night. Farjestad, which includes former Hartford Wolf Pack agitator Devin DiDiomete among its former North American pros, has won four championships in Sweden's top league -- then called Elitserien, now the SHL -- since 2002. It finished second last year.
