NHL All Star Game

Metropolitan Division Team (

After a long day of 3-on-3 hockey, we finally have our winner. After the Metropolitan and Pacific division teams each scored 10 goals in the first two games, taking down the Atlantic and Central divisions respectively, the two faced off in the final game. The Metro would win the game, 4-3, to win the NHL All-Star game tournament, as well as the million dollar prize.

The victorious Metro team would see Seth Jones, Justin Faulk, Cam Atkinson, and Wayne Simmonds. It was the second goal of the day for Jones, while Atkinson and Simmonds both scored their 3rd of the day. For the Pacific, Joe Pavelski, Connor McDavid, and Bo Horvat all scored their second goals of the day.

The Pacific looked to take a 4-2 lead, but Wayne Gretzky would challenge the play, and the referees would deem the play offside, keeping the game at 3-2. The Metro team would score two quick goals following the call, giving them the 4-3 lead that they would hold onto.

Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds was awarded All-Star game MVP. Simmonds scored 3 goals on the day, which led to him winning a brand new Honda, covered in NHL All-Star game decals.
