The NHL All-Star Game and All-Star Skills competition will be held at FLA Live Arena, home of the Florida Panthers, in Sunrise, Fla, on Feb. 3-4. The All-Star Game will once again feature a 3-on-3 tournament between 11-player teams representing the league’s four divisions.
The NHL changed the format for selecting All-Star Weekend participants this season. In previous seasons, fans voted for four captains and the NHL selected the rest of the players.
For this season’s All-Star Game, NHL hockey operations selected the initial 32 players, one from each team, and the fans voted in the final 12 players. The first pool of 32 were revealed on Jan. 5. The online fan vote ran from Jan. 5-17 on the league’s official website and on Twitter, where fans voted using player names, handles and hashtags from Jan. 12-14.
According to the NHL’s vote totals, the final all-stars are:
Matthews, C, Toronto Maple Leafs
Pastrnak, RW, Boston Bruins
Adam Fox, D, New York Rangers
Nathan MacKinnon, C, Colorado Avalanche
Stuart Skinner, G, Edmonton Oilers
The NHL All-Star Skills is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Feb. 3 on ESPN. The NHL All-Star Game will be held at 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 4 on ABC.
