Aaron Luchuk named to All-Star roster for 2022 Warrior/ECHL All-Star Classic

ORLANDO, Fla. — The ECHL announced on Wednesday that Orlando Solar Bears forward has been named to the roster for the ECHL All-Stars for the 2022 Warrior/ECHL All-Star Classic, to be hosted by the Jacksonville Icemen on Monday, Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m. ET at VyStar Veteran Memorial Arena. The game will air LIVE exclusively on NHL Network and be streamed via FloHockey.

Luchuk, 24, was leading the Solar Bears in scoring this season with 27 points (12g-15a) in 21 games prior to receiving a Professional Try-Out agreement with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League on Dec. 28, where he has recorded one goal in two contests. At the time of his loan to Hartford, Luchuk’s 27 points were tied for seventh in scoring in the ECHL.

The fourth-year pro previously won the ECHL scoring title with the Solar Bears during the 2020-21 campaign, his first with Orlando, when he led the circuit with a career-high 74 points (28g-46a) in 72 games. He also received the ECHL’s Sportsmanship Award and was named to the All-ECHL First Team.

Luchuk has 173 points (69g-104a) in 171 career ECHL games with Orlando, Newfoundland and Brampton. He has 10 points (5g-5a) in 35 career AHL games with Hartford, Laval, Belleville and Toronto.

Prior to turning pro, the native of Kingston, Ontario played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League for the Windsor Spitfires and Barrie Colts, producing 251 points (115g-136a) and 51 penalty minutes in 274 games. In the 2016-17 season Luchuk helped Windsor capture the Memorial Cup, and the following year he led the league in scoring with 115 points, while earning OHL Second All-Star Team honors and was selected as the recipient of the Leo Lalonde Memorial Trophy as the league’s best overage player.
