Jason Jaffray (AHL/NHL) has been coaching at Edge Hockey's summer Hockey schools since 2001. He has made impressions of hundreds of players at our schools and we are so proud that he has been named Captain of this year's AHL All Star game.

Jason Jaffray has been part of two previous American Hockey League all-star games, and while it was an honour to play in the league’s marquee events in Toronto and Portland, Maine, it pales in comparison to what awaits the St. John’s IceCaps’ captain next month.
“To play in an all-star game itself is such an honour, but to be captain of a team, in a game that’s played in St. John’s, well, you get chills thinking about it,” Jaffray said Thursday.
“I’m extremely excited. It’s an opportunity you can only dream about. “
Jaffray, a 32-year-old veteran of 525 AHL games spread over 12 seasons, was selected by the league earlier in the day to captain the AHL all-stars in a one-game showdown with Färjestad BK of the Swedish Elite league Feb. 12 at Mile One Centre.
