SAN ANTONIO, TX - The American Hockey League announced on Thursday that San Antonio Rampage rookie forward Jordan Kyrou has been selected to represent the Central Division at the 2019 Lexus AHL All-Star Classic presented by MGM Springfield. Kyrou is the lone Rampage participant in this year's All-Star festivities from Jan. 27-28 in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Kyrou, 20, leads the Rampage in goals (10) and points (23) in his first season in San Antonio. The Toronto, Ontario native was recognized as the AHL's Rookie of the Month for December on Wednesday, the first Rampage player to ever win the award. A second-round pick of the St. Louis Blues in 2016, Kyrou is enjoying a 12-game points streak that ties a Rampage franchise record.

Despite only appearing in 22 AHL games this season, Kyrou is tied for eighth among AHL rookies in scoring, tied for seventh in goals, and fourth with 1.05 points per game. His current points streak is tied for the longest by any AHL player this season, and he has nine goals and 20 points during that stretch with six multipoint performances.

Kyrou has played in 11 NHL games for the St. Louis Blues this season, posting a goal and an assist. He scored his first NHL goal on Dec. 9 against the Vancouver Canucks.

Kyrou is the seventh rookie in Rampage history to be named an All-Star, joining AJ Greer (2016-17), Mikko Rantanen (2015-16), Drew Shore (2012-13), Brett MacLean (2008-09), Keith Yandle (2006-07), and Filip Novak (2002-03).
