The 2019 NHL All-Star Game is headed to San Jose’s SAP Center, home of the Sharks, for the 64th running of hockey’s midseason celebration.
For the fourth consecutive year, the format features a 3-on-3 tournament between the four divisions. The skills competition will take place 9 p.m. ET on Jan. 25.
Each division has a fan-voted captain. Connor McDavid will represent the Pacific Division, Nathan MacKinnon will represent the Central Division and Auston Matthews will represent the Atlantic Division. Alex Ovechkin was selected as the captain for the Metropolitan Division but has since withdrew from the event.
There is a competitive aspect to the NHL All-Star Game that makes for an entertaining and thrilling exhibition of hockey.
The league has taken the exciting three-on-three aspect of regular-season overtime hockey and used it as the basis of the All-Star Game, which will be played Saturday night in San Jose, California. The three-on-three tournament between the All-Stars from the Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central and Pacific Divisions gets underway at 8 p.m. ET, and it will be televised by NBC.
The broadcast marks the first time the NHL All-Star Game returns to prime-time network television since 1997. The game will also be live streamed at NBCSports.com.
