2022 NHL All-Star Game: Schedule, Time, TV Channel, How to Watch


The NHL all-star game is back!

After a year away, the 2022 NHL all-star game will take place in Paradise, Nevada on Feb. 5. The format will once again replicate the version fans enjoyed in 2020, when the four divisions competed in the three-on-three tournament first seen in 2016 and is now a staple of the league's overtime periods.

The tournament will feature three games played in the three-on-three format. Each of the four teams will include six forwards, three defensemen and two goaltenders.

With the game being held in Las Vegas, the league embraced their festivities destination with a NHL "Fountain Face-off" to showcase their skills competition on Friday. 

Fan voting ended on Saturday and the captains and team rosters were revealed on Jan. 13. Alex Ovechkin was named one of the four captains, but who else saw their name selected for the big midseason event? Here's everything else you need to know about the NHL's showcase festivities.
