Future Nhl All Star Games

According to a new report, the NHL will reportedly add an additional international all star game to the regular season in a move that could bolster revenue for all 20 teams.


On October 22, 2020, the NHL officially announced that both the Winter Classic in Minnesota and the All-Star Game had been postponed for the 2020–21 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and "uncertainty as to when we will be able to welcome our fans back to our games," as fan participation and accompanying events are considered "integral to the[ir] success". The NHL stated that both events will not return until 2022 at the earliest, and that these events could be held in Minneapolis and Sunrise "in the near future" (but not yet naming them the 2022 hosts).

The Last Men In for each division, as decided by a fan vote, were named on Tuesday. Nazem Kadri of the Avalanche, Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Troy Terry of the Anaheim Ducks and Jake Guentzel of the Pittsburgh Penguins were added to the rosters for their respective divisions. Guentzel will play in place of Rangers forward Mika Zibanejad, who won the fan vote but can't play in the All-Star Game because of personal reasons. (Source: www.nhl.com)


My top line features two of the most dazzling goal-scorers in the NHL in MacKinnon, the captain, and Kaprizov. Makar, a defenseman who can generate offense like a forward, completes the line. DeBrincat and Kadri know how to get the puck on net, and they're teamed with Pavelski, who is a master at the art of scoring goals from tight spaces. The third line has proven offensive performers in Connor, Keller and Kyrou. Connor and Kyrou are in their first All-Star game; Keller his second. Saros starts in goal because he has been the backbone of Nashville's surprisingly strong first half. -- Tracey Myers, staff writer

Arda Ocal: Zegras is the biggest snub for me strictly from a dazzle perspective. You can certainly make an argument that statistically there are bigger snubs, but Zegras orchestrated one of the most exciting goals in NHL history -- that alone deserves a spot. At the very least he'd be good in the skills competition. Plus, I would love to see his personality shine on a stage like the All-Star Game. Honorable mention to Nazem Kadri, who doesn't get the headlines that Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar get in Colorado, but has been a rock for his team this season and is definitely worthy of a spot in Vegas, in my humble opinion.
