The NHL Alumni Association will announce its Man of the Year in a tribute to the 1967 Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto’s last Stanley Cup champion, and the Professional Women’s Hockey League will play a 3-on-3 game.

The skills competition, which will be held Feb. 2, will have a new look this year as well, with 12 NHL All-Stars competing for points in eight events, with the NHL All-Star who accumulates the most points taking home a prize of $1 million (USD).

Each player will compete in four of the first six events listed below, earning points for their respective finish in each event.

The events are: Fastenal NHL Fastest Skater; Rogers NHL Hardest Shot; Upper Deck NHL Stick Handling; NHL One Timers; NHL Passing Challenge; and Cheetos NHL Accuracy Shooting.

The top eight point-earners will advance to the seventh event, the Honda NHL One-on-One, where each player will choose which goalie they shoot against. Following the Honda NHL One-on-One, the top six point-earners will advance to the eighth and final event, the Pepsi NHL Obstacle Course, where the point totals are doubled.

“We’ve decided to add a third night to an already vibrant weekend,” NHL chief content officer Steve Mayer said. “We felt like this was a year to make some changes.”
