Gulls’ Kvartalnov, Hachborn Named All-Stars
Two members of the Gulls’ “Hot Line,” Dimitri Kvartalnov and Len Hachborn, were named Monday to the West squad for the IHL’s All-Star game Feb. 2 in Atlanta.
Kvartalnov and Hachborn, new to the Gulls this season, combined with linemate and 1990-91 veteran Robbie Nichols to scored 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists) in three games last week, when the Gulls were 2-0-1 and moved into second place in the IHL West.
Kvartalnov tallied 10 points and Hachborn had nine for the week. They are the top two scorers in the league. Eight more players for each All-Star team will be chosen later this week.
