The All-Star games in sports across the United States are primed for this weekend. The two main events from the National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star 2020 weekend will be the NHL All-Star Skills Competition and the NHL All-Star Game itself. The NHL All-Star Skills Competition celebrated its 30th anniversary as it kicked off the All-Star weekend in St. Louis on Friday night (Saturday morning IST).
Mathew Barzal came agonisingly close to posting the quickest lap in the history of the Fastest Skater event. Barzal finished 0.003 seconds behind Dylan Larkin’s record-setting run of 13.172 in 2016. However, Barzal (13.175s) did go past runner-up McDavid’s 13.215 and Chris Kreider’s 13.509. Anthony Duclair, certainly, couldn't contain his excitement.

Sports apparel giant Adidas was handed with the sponsorship deal for the NHL All-Star Game jerseys. “To pay homage to the original sweaters of the St. Louis Blues and to transform the city’s acclaimed rhythm and blues history into a tangible form, the 2020 Honda NHL® All-Star Game jersey’s striping mimics a musical staff along the front and sleeves of the jersey." Adidas said after the launch.
