Wrapping up the NHL All-Star Weekend is the 2023 All-Star Game set to take place today in South Florida.
Well, it's not just one game. The NHL is back with its 3 on 3, single elimination tournament for its All-Star "game". Each division has a team consisting of nine skaters and two goaltenders that are participating in the open-ice competition.
Up first is the Central Division vs. Pacific Division, then the Atlantic Division and Metropolitan Division are going to follow suit. The winners of the two games square off in the final to determine the 2023 winner.
The Metro is the reigning All-Star champion. The team beat the Central squad in the 2022 final. Since the start of the 3 on 3 format, the Metro is tied with the Pacific for the most wins in the All-Star Game with three.
Those two are the only divisions to win the 3 on 3 tournament, as the Atlantic and Central have no All-Star 3 on 3 titles.

2023 NHL All-Star Game format
The All-Star Game is unique in the NHL. In fact, it is not just one game, but three.
Starting in 2016, the league changed the format of the games to a 3-on-3, single-elimination tournament featuring four teams, one for each division. There are two semifinal games before the two winners meet in the All-Star Game Final.
Each game consists of two, 10-minute halves. If there is a tie after 20 minutes, then it will go to a three-round shootout, plus extra rounds as needed to determine the winner.
