The 2019 NHL All-Star Weekend will be hosted by the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.

The weekend will take place on Jan. 25-27, 2019 with the skills competition taking place on Saturday, Jan. 26 and the NHL All-Star Game occurring on Sunday, Jan. 27.

“All-Star Weekend brings the NHL family together in celebration of our sport,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “Our players, our teams, our fans and our partners gather around a number of very special events and activities, and our host city steps into a bright world-wide spotlight.

“In 2019, our stars will display their skills and the City of San Jose, the SAP Center at San Jose and the Sharks will showcase their hospitality. We’re looking forward to a terrific All-Star Weekend in San Jose.”

This will be the second time that San Jose will host the event. The Sharks previously held the NHL All-Star Game in 1997.
