The United States Hockey League announced today that Rob Ricci, a forward for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders will replace Phillip Axtell, a RoughRiders teammate of Ricci's, in the USHL Prospects/All-Star Game next Tuesday in Grand Forks, N.D.

Axtell will not be able to participate in the game due to an injury. Axtell is in his first season in the USHL and has committed to play his college hockey at Michigan Tech University of the WCHA starting this fall.

Axtell played from 2002-2004 with the Marquette Electricians midget AAA team in the Midwest Elite Hockey League.
