NHL All-Star Weekend schedule 2024: Times, TV channels, roster for Skills Competition and All-Star Game

The NHL’s best are set to convene in one of hockey’s most-storied cities, as Toronto hosts this weekend’s 2024 NHL All-Star Game. 

A revamped NHL All-Star Skills competition is slated for Friday night, while the game — featuring four different teams, as drafted by their respective captains — is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. 

Four Maple Leafs, including seven-time All-Star and 2024 All-Star captain Auston Matthews, will represent the hometown team. 

Of the 34 players selected, seven are first-time All-Stars, including Connor Bedard, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft. But Bedard will miss the festivities as he continues to recover from a broken jaw. 

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the 2024 All-Star festivities.

  • Date: Saturday, Feb. 3
  • Time: 3 p.m. ET

This year’s All-Star Game blends two previous formats together. For the eighth consecutive year, the game features a four-team, three-on-three format that the NHL adopted over a traditional two-team format. In addition, this year marks the return of the “fantasy draft,” with the four captains picking their teams on Thursday, Feb. 1. 

Ahead of the draft, the four teams are: Team Matthews (Auston Matthews, Morgan Rielly), Team McDavid (Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl), Team MacKinnon (Nathan MacKinnon, Cale Makar) and Team Hughes (Quinn Hughes, Elias Pettersson). Each pair is also accompanied by a celebrity.
