New NHL all-star game format

17 November 2015 - 10:34 PM

From McKenzie on Insider Trading:

Theres going to be a 3-on-3 mini-game format for the All-Star Game. The National Hockey League Players Association recently signed off on that format, and the expectation is that the League will be making some sort of formal announcement about it tomorrow.

"What we believe to be the case is that the fantasy draft will be dead. Instead, there will be four divisional teams nine or 10 skaters apiece, a couple of goaltenders. The two teams in the Eastern Conference would play a 20-minute mini-game. The two teams in the Western Conference would play a 20-minute mini-game. And then you would have the two winners play a 20-minute mini-game.


The mix up is interesting.. it definitely needed one, but this seems like it could get boring fast. I imagine there will be notable snubs too. And also, more goalies will make it.

I hope I'm wrong and it's as exciting at 3v3 OT has been the whole time.

Either way, I'm glad they keep finding ways to mix up the all-star game.
