NHL – The NHL All Star Weekend Begins

The Detroit Red Wings are off until next Tuesday as the NHL gears up for All Star weekend in Columbus.

Goalie Jimmy Howard was the only player from Detroit selected as an All Star, but he will not participate because of an injury.

Detroit will be the only NHL team without a representative at the game, and it marks the second time the Wings did not send a player to the festivities.

Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Lidstrom did not take part in the 2009 All Star weekend because of injuries.

The NHL skills competition is tomorrow, followed by the 2015 All Star Game on Sunday.
