INDIANAPOLIS - The Mountain Division All-Stars defeated the South Division All-Stars 6-5 in a shootout in the championship game of the 2018 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic.

The 2018 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic featured not two, but four teams, representing each of the League's divisions. In a format similar to those adapted by the NHL and AHL All-Star Games, the four teams competed in a 3-on-3 tournament in order to crown a winner.

South Carolina's Taylor Cammarata earned Most Valuable Player honors, totaling five goals and two assists in the two games.

In the championship game, the South got goals from Jacksonville's Christopher Dienes and Norfolk's Grant Besse in the final two minutes of regulation to tie the game, sending the contest to a shootout. In the shootout, Utah's Cliff Watson scored while Cammarata was stopped, clinching the win for the Mountain.
