Hockey may have been born in frigid temperatures, but nothing warms our hearts quite like the NHL All-Star Weekend. From the raucous fans and body checks to the insane traditions and penalty box, what’s not to love about a weekend dedicated to hockey?
The first official All-Star Game was held during the 1947–48 NHL season and is now the symbolic halfway point in the regular season. While many aspects of the sport have changed over the years, our love for the game is always constant.
