Robby Stanley - Correspondent

NASHVILLE – The 2016 NHL All-Stars hit the red carpet in advance of the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.

A huge crowd gathered to watch the players and coaches walk the red carpet and interact with the fans. It was a perfect illustration to Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber on how much hockey has grown in the city.

"It's unbelievable," Weber said. "You can see how much the fans love hockey here and how much it means to this city. It's kind of a long time coming. I felt like people wanted the All-Star Game here for a long time, and they finally got their wish."

NASHVILLE -- There were more spills than goals, and a few puddles as well, but the countless smiles at the IntelliCentrics Ice Rink at Bridgestone Winter Park made it all worth it.

As part of the NHL's Learn to Play program, 14 Nashville youngsters hit the outdoor ice rink Saturday next to Bridgestone Arena – site of the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game (5 p.m., NBCSN, SN, TVAS) Sunday, continuing to learn the game of hockey and clearly having fun.

Learn to Play is a program aimed at removing access barriers for U.S. and Canadian youth by providing children ages 4-8 free head-to-toe equipment and at least six weeks of on-ice training at no charge. The Nashville Predators are part of a pilot program. On Saturday, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said the program will launch nationally later this year.

Saturday, 01.30.2016 / 11:08 AM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux experienced some local flavor Friday after arriving in Nashville for 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend.

Giroux and some friends visited the set of ABC's hit TV show "Nashville." Several stars of the show, including Chris Carmack, Hayden Panettiere and Jonathan Jackson, took a timeout between takes to meet with Giroux.

Giroux will take part in the DraftKings Accuracy Shooting competition, the Gatorade NHL Skills Challenge Relay and the Discover NHL Shootout during the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports) and compete on the Metropolitan Division squad in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

Panthers' Luongo, Jagr excited for playoff push

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 6:43 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

NASHVILLE -- When goaltender Roberto Luongo accepted a trade from the Vancouver Canucks to the Florida Panthers on March 4, 2014, a lot of people thought he was doing what many people do when they relocate to Florida: preparing to retire.

Less than two years later Luongo will play in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports) with teammates Aaron Ekblad and Jaromir Jagr. His coach, Gerard Gallant, will be behind the bench of the Atlantic Division team, a reward for the Panthers entering the break in first place.

There was no intention on Luongo's part to go to Florida and wind down his career. The intent was to win.

Jagr, an All-Star at age 43, inspires younger Panthers

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 6:21 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

NASHVILLE -- Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr can relate to John Scott.

Jagr played in his first NHL All-Star Game in 1992, when he was voted in by the fans at age 19 to start at forward for the Wales Conference alongside Pittsburgh Penguins teammates Mario Lemieux and Kevin Stevens.

However, back in Pittsburgh, Jagr, who was on the fourth line, almost never played with Lemieux that season.

So getting to start in the All-Star Game felt a bit strange for Jagr back then. Scott, who has five career goals, was voted by the fans to be captain of the Pacific Division team.

Predators have made major impact on Nashville

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 5:17 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

NASHVILLE -- The roots the Nashville Predators have grown during the past 18 years were perfectly evident Friday morning when approximately 350 members of the city's business community attended a breakfast event with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman at the landmark Wild Horse Saloon.

The event, hosted by the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, was a celebration of the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend and what it means for the area's economy as well as what the Predators have meant for the identity of the city.

"Haven't the Nashville Predators become Nashville's team? Aren't they deep into the community?" Chamber of Commerce president Ralph Schultz asked the attendees, receiving shouts in the affirmative in response after each question. "Gary Bettman has been at the center of these things happening."

Red Wings rookie Larkin 'nervous' for All-Star Game

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NASHVILLE-- Being an NHL All-Star and getting the chance to be in the Music City spotlight at 19 years old is as strange as Detroit Red Wings rookie Dylan Larkin expected it to be.

"I feel more nervous than I would for an actual game," Larkin said Friday. "I don't really know many guys and I don't really know what's going on."

Larkin was a fan until this season, another teenager dreaming of one day getting his chance but never expecting it to come this soon.
