The NHL’s best face off tonight in Northern California with a million bucks on the line.
Forty-four players are in San Jose today for the NHL All-Star tournament, featuring three-on-three mini games between the divisions that will end with one team returning home with a share of the $1 million top prize. Last night’s skills competition saw demonstrations like David Pastrnak making short work of the accuracy shooting contest, Johnny Gaudreau going back to back in the puck control relay, US Olympian Kendall Coyne more than holding her own and finishing just a second behind the NHL’s fastest skater, Connor McDavid, and Sebastian Aho finishing second in the passing competition above a whole bunch of big names.
Tonight, the stars face off in prime time for the first time in recent memory.
Here are the rosters for the four teams. The two Western Conference teams will play each other first at 8:00, followed by the two divisions from the East, and the winners will face off for the million dollar bonus. Feel free to chat about the night’s action in the comments!
