San Jose to host 2019 NHL All-Star game

The Flyers return to the ice on Wednesday against the Washington Capitals.

Day One of the All-Star Weekend began on Saturday with the skills competition. "It's something I am going to try and absorb as much as I can, I'm trying to soak it all in".

Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon are eight and nine points back of Nikita Kucherov, respectively, for the overall scoring lead.

It was the third year for the 3-on-3 format and it is still getting good reviews - well, as good as you can get for an All-Star Game.

The NHL All-Star game will be broadcast on NBC in the United States plus CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada.

Next year's All-Star Game will be held January 17 in San Jose, California. And just in time for the weekend of festivities, the Lightning announced that the arena will be updated for the mobile world. Jagr had a goal and six assists in 22 games this season but hasn't played since December 31 because of what the team called a lower-body injury. "Alex can obviously do that as well as anyone, and there is no sign of him slowing down".

Edmonton and New Jersey will open next season in Sweden, while Winnipeg and Florida will play a regular-season game in November in Finland.

Along with the hardest shot, the most accurate shot and the fastest skater, the National Hockey League is unveiling three new events at this year's All-Star skills competition. The Lightning missed last year's playoffs but now seem like a Stanley Cup contender, just like the Jets, who keep swapping the Central Division lead with Nashville. Burns got the play started by sliding a cross-ice pass over to Connor McDavid who found James Neal in the slot for a five-hole goal.

All in all the league-leading Lightning boast the most All-Stars this season, but the weekend is not lacking for talent.

Aguero's ideal hat-trick is Argentine's 11th for Manchester City
Arsenal , who hadn't won in their last five games in all competitions, struck their four goals in a blistering start to the match. The dream of an undefeated season is now over, but City can still be the most dominant champion in Premier League history.

The Atlantic reached the final with four straight goals, and had a fifth nullified, to overcome a one-goal deficit. This season, those criticisms have been quieted, and Ovechkin's age has gone from a slight to a strength.

He's the first rookie since Mario Lemieux in 1985 to be name the game's best player.

Program Director and Assistant Professor for Sport Management Chris Amos said the partnership came about after a Liberty alumna, who is now working for the NHL, called him in December looking to hire students for various roles to support the wide range of events that make up NHL All-Star Weekend. "I think the guys feel really badly for him". Connor McDavid (13.454 seconds) of the Oilers became the first player to be the fastest skater victor in back-to back years.

While Bettman trumpeted the ability to "share NHL hockey with our fans overseas" he seemed nonplussed about skipping the Olympics.

Then, he had no facial hair and stringy dark-brown bangs covering his forehead.

If you can't beat them, then showcase them.

"I think everyone kind of knows what's going on around the league, and most of the guys in here know each other", Karlsson said.

"It's tough, not knowing what's going to happen, how big your market is going to be, are you going to be the same (player) coming back?" I loved it, everything, the atmosphere, the organization, it's a high level. He smirked and leaned toward the microphone.
