San Jose is home of the 2019 NHL All-Star weekend, and it all starts with the NHL Skills Competition on Friday night at SAP Center.
Hockey's brightest stars will be on display to showcase their talents. The night will showcase six events: Fastest Skater, Premier Passer, Puck Control, Accuracy Shooting, Save Streak, and Hardest Shot.
The winner of each event will earn $25,000.
Every player in the All-Star Game will compete in at least one event. Due to an illness, though, Penguins star Sidney Crosby will not be on the ice.
Below is who will be participating in each event:
Will we see a @cmcdavid97 three-peat in the Fastest Skater event or will @KendallCoyne take top spot in her historic debut? #NHLAllStar
