NASHVILLE -- The NHL has descended upon Tennessee for the 2016 All-Star Weekend, and the events on the ice officially kick off Saturday night with the NHL Skills Competition.

While the All-Star Game itself has changed formats this year, the Skills Competition remains the same. It'll be the Eastern Conference All-Stars against the Western Conference All-Stars, competing in six events:

  • Bridgestone NHL Fastest Skater™
  • Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge™
  • DraftKings NHL Accuracy Shooting™
  • Gatorade NHL Skills Challenge Relay™
  • AMP Energy NHL Hardest Shot™
  • Discover NHL Shootout™

Claude Giroux is the lone Flyers representative at the All-Star festivities this year. He'll participate in three events: the accuracy shooting challenge, the skills challenge relay and the shootout.
