The 2009 ECHLAll-Star Game will be the ECHL's 17th edition of the exhibition game and will be the all-star game of the 2008-09 season. The game will be held at Sovereign Center in Reading, Pennsylvania, home of the Reading Royals and take place on Wednesday, January 21, 2008. The game will mark the first time that a city has hosted the event more than once, as Reading hosted the 2005 edition of the game as well. The 2005 All-Star Game was also the last time that an American Conference city had hosted the event.
