Starry time for Bergman

Cam Bergman scored the biggest goal in franchise history for the Edmonton Rush and his good luck continues to roll along.

Bergman was named to the West Division team yesterday for the NLL All-Star Game, which goes this Saturday in Toronto.

Bergman, who has three goals and nine assists, along with a team-high 52 loose balls, scored the goal with 0.1 seconds left in regulation that gave the Rush their first victory Friday night in Calgary.

"It's been a good week for him - one that he'll remember for the rest of the year. Probably the rest of his life," said A.J. Jomha, the Rush's director of lacrosse operations.

"I think Cam is going to bring an exciting aspect to the all-star game because of his speed. He's going to make a real impression."

The 23-year-old defenceman from Coquitlam, B.C., replaces Rush captain Andrew Turner who aggravated a groin injury that has bothered him since camp.

"It's too bad that Turns isn't going to make it because he's the real all-star, but it was an honour when they asked me," said Bergman.

"I'm going to go and enjoy myself and learn whatever I can."

The Rush have a bye this week, which should allow Turner enough time to heal ahead of Edmonton's game in Colorado on March 3.
