All-Star Game[edit]

During the 2012 MSL Entry Draft, the league announced it would be holding its first ever All-Star Game. Peterborough was set to host, citing average attendance as the driving factor.[1] However, in April that same year the game was cancelled stating that there were concerns about unnecessary risk of injury and distribution of revenue being two insurmountable issues.[2]
