AHL.com -- American Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews announced today that Trent Whitfield of the Providence Bruins and Quintin Laing of the Abbotsford Heat have been selected to serve as playing captains for the 2013 Dunkin' Donuts AHL All-Star Classic, to be held January 27-28 in Providence, R.I.

Captains for the American Hockey League All-Star teams are selected by the league president in recognition of their outstanding service and leadership to the AHL.

Trent Whitfield has spent part of each of his 15 professional seasons in the American Hockey League, including the last four with Providence. The 35-year-old native of Alameda, Sask., has played 769 career AHL games and is a four-time 20-goal scorer, totaling 240 goals and 343 assists for 583 points with Portland (1998-2005), Peoria (2005-09) and Providence (2009- ). Originally drafted by Boston in 1996, Whitfield has also skated in 194 career NHL games with the Bruins, St. Louis, the New York Rangers and Washington.

Whitfield, who made his only previous AHL All-Star Classic appearance in 2003, will captain the Eastern Conference AHL All-Stars.

Now in his 13th professional season, Quintin Laing has appeared in 650 career AHL contests with Norfolk, Hershey and Abbotsford, registering 95 goals and 167 assists for 262 points and winning a Calder Cup with the Bears in 2009. Drafted by Detroit in 1997, Laing is one of the AHL's top defensive forwards and has worn the captain's "C" in each of his three AHL stops - including the last two seasons with the Heat.

Laing, a 33-year-old native of Harris, Sask., has played 79 NHL games with Chicago and Washington, and will be making his AHL All-Star Classic debut as captain of the Western Conference All-Star team.
