The National Hockey League edges closer to All-Star Weekend this week, with five exclusive games on ESPN and ESPN+/Hulu.

The game matchup will offer a Star Watch alternate feed featuring the Blue Jacket’s Gaudreau and the Flames’ Nazem Kadri, exclusively available on ESPN+.

A highlight of this week’s matchups, the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights visit the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center, as the Devils look to climb to the top spot in the Metropolitan Division. In their first matchup of the regular season, points and assists leader, Chandler Stephenson of the Golden Knights face the Devils’ Jack Hughes, with 30 goals to-date. Hughes also goes up against the Golden Knight’s Jack Eichel – two American-born superstars and top two draft picks.

On Saturday, the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions, Colorado Avalanche continue their quest for a division playoff spot when they host the St. Louis Blues, fourth in the Central Division, sitting behind the Avalanche in third. The Central-Division matchup will take place at Ball Arena.
