Sweeney, McVie Honored by AHL

TheAHL.com -- The American Hockey League announced today that Tom McVie and Don Sweeney will serve as the honorary captains for the 2013 Dunkin' Donuts AHL All-Star Classic, to be held January 27-28 in Providence, R.I.

Each year, the All-Star Classic honorary captains are around the All-Star teams in the locker room and on the benches during the Skills Competition and All-Star Game, and are recognized for their careers at the annual AHL Hall of Fame Inductions & Awards Ceremony.

Tom McVie's career in professional hockey has spanned nearly 60 years. His association with the American Hockey League began in 1982 when he was named head coach of the Maine Mariners and led the team to the Calder Cup Finals.

McVie spent a total of 10 seasons as an AHL head coach with Maine (1982-87), the Utica Devils (1987-91) and the Providence Bruins (1997-98), receiving the Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award as the league's outstanding coach in 1989.

McVie won 329 AHL games, ranking 11th all-time, and is now in his 19th season with the Boston Bruins organization, and 14th in a scouting capacity.

Drafted by the Boston Bruins and an All-American defenseman at Harvard University, Don Sweeney made his professional debut with the AHL's Maine Mariners in 1988 and spent parts of his first two pro seasons with the club.

He would play 15 seasons with Boston, becoming one of just four players in franchise history to skate in more than 1,000 games with the team, and joined the organization's front office in 2006.

Sweeney has been the Bruins assistant general manager since 2010, and helped to build the team's 2011 Stanley Cup championship squad.
