WINDSOR, CO. - The American Hockey League announced today the 2023-24 AHL First and Second All-Star Teams, as voted by AHL coaches, players and media in each of the league's 32 member cities. As part of the selection, Eagles defenseman Brad Hunt has been named to the AHL First All-Star Team for the 2023-24 campaign.

Hunt, who is in his second season as the Eagles team captain, is tied for first among all AHL defensemen in goals (16) and ranks second among the league's blueliners with 49 points. Those 49 points currently lead Colorado, while his 33 assists are also tops on the team.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound defenseman earned a spot at the AHL All-Star Classic in 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2023 and has now earned regular season All-Star honors in 2014, 2015 and 2024.

Hunt has generated 279 points in 381 career AHL games and led the league's blueliners with a career-high 19 goals with the Oklahoma City Barons during the 2014-15 season. In addition to his time in the AHL, the Maple Ridge, British Columbia native has posted 26 goals and 60 assists in 288 career NHL games with the Avalanche, Vancouver Canucks, Minnesota Wild, Vegas Golden Knights, Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues and Edmonton Oilers.

On the international scene, Hunt helped lead his native Canada to a Gold Medal at the 2023 IIHF World Championships, collecting three assists in 10 contests.
