All-Star Teams

All-Star selection data is validated against originally media published reports where possible to correct discrepancies, add unanimous and tied data for division all-stars and provide the period position description of the selection.

Sources for 1979 and 1982 All-Canadian team were not found. If you have sources, or wish to research and provide, please contact me.

Reminder

If you see numbers or information that is obviously wrong, please give me a heads up so they may be corrected and misinformation does not remain present on the site for other visitors and is not spread. All errors are embarrassing and I work to correct them as soon as reported.
