Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The rosters for the 2016 NHL Skills Competition are out, and Claude Giroux will play a big role for the Eastern Conference team on Saturday night at the annual event.

The Flyers captain, the only representative from Philadelphia going to Nashville, will take part in the Accuracy Shooting competition, the stick handling portion of the Skills Challenge Relay, and the Shootout at the end of the night. Every player will participate in that last one.

The event can be seen at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN in the United States, and Sportsnet, CBC and TVA Sports in Canada.
