NHL All-Star Game to feature women's 3-on-3 event

Report: Women’s 3-on-3 scrimmage planned for NHL All-Star Weekend

Kaplan adds that the league will make an announcement with the details on how the scrimmage will work and some new elements for the skills competition.

The National Hockey League's All-Star Game, which will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, later this month, will contain a 3-on-3 scrimmage between leading American and Canadian women's ice hockey players, according to multiple reports.

The All-Star festivities in St. Louis later this month will reportedly have a women's United States of America vs.

The players who will attend the all-star weekend are part of the Professional Women's Hockey Players Association and are now participating in the Dream Gap Tour where 200 of the top female hockey players in North America have been traveling across the continent to compete in a series of games.

This will be the third straight year the NHL invites women's hockey players to participate during the All-Star weekend.

Women have participated in the last two NHL All-Star weekends.


Last year, four women players were invited to take part in all-star game weekend events in San Jose, California.

The Canadian Women's Hockey League folded in March, leaving just the five-team National Women's Hockey League.

National team players from the US and Canada will be split into two 10-player teams and compete in a 20-minute 3-on-3 scrimmage during the skills competition. She finished seventh among eight skaters with a time of 14.346 seconds, beating Arizona. The all-star game, featuring a series of three-on-three games, will be played January 25, a day after the annual skills competition.

The CWHL's demise eventually led to more than 200 of the world's top players announcing they wouldn't play professionally this season in North America, including the NWHL. The NWHL, in the meantime, is in the middle of its fifth season and featuring teams made up of patchwork rosters with a handful of association players having returned to play.

Most of the players who will compete in the women's event at the All-Star Game will reportedly be PWHPA members.
