NHL Skills Competition

January 23, 2009

When the National Hockey League first began playing All Star games in the 1947-1948 season, league executives had no idea that it would turn into the festival that it is today. When All Star weekend begins in Montreal on January 24, the spotlight will be on the players, the league and the city. It’s a big business now; sponsors, fans, celebrations. A big part of the NHL All Star weekend is the skills competition, held the day before the actual game. With the anticipation growing as the event draws near, Sports Poster Warehouse wants to make our predictions for All Star weekend in Montreal.

NHL All Star Weekend-First Time All Stars

January 23, 2009

This year’s NHL All Star Weekend in Montreal taking place this weekend is sure to be the toast of both the town and the league. There is already a huge buzz in Montreal, as it is the Canadien’s 100th year anniversary. Furthermore, Montreal is well represented at this year’s event, with Alex Kovalev, Mike Komisarek, Andrei Markov and Carey Price all representing the storied Montreal franchise. Even greater cause for excitement at this year’s All Star weekend is the appearance and emergence of several young stars making their All Star game debuts. So, in no particular order, Sports Poster Warehouse gives props to this new breed of NHL All Stars.
