The NHL Skills competition is today and one of the faces you will see a lot is Patrick Kane.  Kane is the Captain of the Central Division and along with Pacific Captain John Scott made the decision for which All-Stars from the Western Conference will be participating in each of the skills competitions.

The Competitions for tonight’s Skills Competitions are as follows
