Hockey fans can look forward to two main events, the All-Star Skills competition and All-Star Game.

Tune in to watch some of hockey's biggest names compete in a range of categories, including speed, accuracy and hardest shots. There will even be a women's 3-on-3 game.

Here's what you need to know:
