The All-Star Game is held at the midpoint of the NHL season and has a unique format that differs considerably from that of other professional sports. The game features three different games, each with 10-mintue halves. The teams are made up of top players from the league’s four divisions. All-stars from the Pacific division face those all-stars from the Central Division. Meanwhile, all-stars from the Atlantic Division are pitted against all-stars from the Continental Division. The winners from the two games meet in the championship. If there is a tie, the game will go into a shootout.
The All-Star game has gone through a number of format changes throughout the years, including forming teams based on geographical location, and choosing captains by a fan vote for each division. Regardless of format, the game has always been popular.
The Super Skills Competition is another must-see event. It includes showcases of accuracy shooting, the fastest skater, hardest shot, breakaway challenge, skills challenge relay and elimination shootout. The skills challenge was first instituted in 1990. The skills challenge is held the night before the All-Star Game and features a wide range of players from across the NHL.
