PEORIA - Micki DuPont overcame a slow start to the 2007-08 season and rallied himself into a slot this week in the AHL All-Star Game.He's hoping to help his Peoria Rivermen do the same, in essence.
DuPont, selected to be Peoria's sole representative - he'll play for the Canadian squad - in the AHL's Jan. 28 All-Star game at Binghamton, N.Y., leads the Rivermen into a seven-game road trip that opens tonight at Grand Rapids.
