The 2022 NHL All-Star Game is nigh. Representatives from every team in the NHL have traveled to Las Vegas to compete in a skills competition, 3-on-3 tournament, and more. Detroit’s very own Dylan Larkin, with 44 points in 42 games, will represent the Red Wings this season in his second appearance of his career.
Friday’s event — the Skills Competition — is set to be one of the most exciting yet. The NHL has decided to lean into the Vegas theme, adding a few never-before-seen games and events for both viewers and participants to enjoy. ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski shared a few early pictures of what fans can expect, including competitions like Fountain Faceoff and Blackjack Hockey.
