All-Star Game

The 2020 All-Star Game was hosted by the St. Louis Blues at Enterprise Center on January 25, 2020. Originally, the 2021 All-Star Game was suppose to be hosted by the Florida Panthers at the BB&T Center on January, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic stopping the 2019-2020 season and postponing the next season, it was cancelled. The league was pondering about changing the All-Star Game’s format to an international setup, imitating the World Cup of Hockey.

The league announced on June 28, 2021, that the 2022 All-Star Game will take place instead at T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas. The league stated that they had not yet made a deal with The International Olympic Committee on submitting players to the 2022 Winter Olympics. They planned to go forward and schedule the All-Star Game anyway. They chose an arena on the West Coast to restrict potential travel to China if players do go.

NHL Voting

The 2022 NHL All-Star fan voting is now underway. Fans can now vote for players who will serve as captains for their respective divisional teams. Five players from the Golden Knights have been selected as candidates for the Pacific Division captain title. The players include; Mark Stone, Alex Pietrangelo, Max Pacioretty, Reilly Smith, and Chandler Stephenson.

Fans have a chance to vote up to 10 times in a 24-hour period. Voting ends on Saturday, January 8, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

So Vegas fans, let’s get our votes in so we can see one or more of our players as a captain this year!
