Yandle, who is a member of Team Alfredsson, is scheduled to take part in two events: Fastest Skater and the Skills Challenge Relay, during which he will be the team’s designated left-handed one-timer shooter.

“It will be fun to see how it goes,” Yandle said. “The whole day is fun and the whole event – the All-Star Game – is fun so I’m looking forward to it.”
