The Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews captains the Atlantic Division team; the Flyers' Claude Giroux leads the Metropolitan Division; the Jets' Kyle Connor takes charge of the Central Division team; while Connor McDavid of the Oilers skippers the Pacific Division team.
Connor has both Cale Makar and Kirill Kaprizov on his team, which could either produce glorious fireworks or a hilarious horror show, and that's exactly what the All-Star Weekend's about.

NHL All-Star Skills Competition 2022
The 2022 All-Star Skills Competition is being held on Friday, February 4, starting at 7.30pm ET / 6.30pm CT / 4.30pm PT. This year it will encompass seven events, two of which will take over world-famous Las Vegas landmarks.
An ice rink has been built into the Fountains of Bellagio for the Fountain Face-Off, in which eight competitors will aim to shoot pucks into five targets in the fastest time - after being rowed to the rink, naturally.
Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Strip will be partly shut down for a giant game of blackjack involving pucks and giant cards.
And, of course, there are the old favorites Fastest Skater, Hardest Shot, Breakaway Challenge, Accuracy Shooting, and Save Streak.
