Top @NHL superstars are taking their talents to Nashville this weekend for the 61st National Hockey League All-Star Game (#NHLAllStar) and all of the high flying action on and off the ice will also unfold on Twitter.

Whether it’s on the ice, in the locker room, or on the red carpet, Twitter partnered with the NHL to offer an awesome second-screen experience to hockey fans worldwide. You can join the convo using #NHLAllStar.

A Twitter Mirror will once again capture content from the All-Stars all weekend for candid photos you won’t find anywhere else.

Twitter will also be out in full force during the Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition (#NHLSkills). Look out for in-game highlights via @SnappyTV, plus live-streaming content, shown to the second via @periscopeco.

To help bring #NHLAllStar Tweets to life, Twitter and the NHL will be debuting a
new series of NHL All-Star Twitter emojis. Fans can use these to bring color to their #NHLAllStar and #NHLFanFair Tweets and cheer on their favourite players.

Fans will also be able to vote — via a Twitter poll — on the sixth and final entrant to the #NHLSkills Breakaway Challenge.

Last, but certainly not least, are the Tweets from the #NHLAllStar players themselves. St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott (@KidsElls1) made headlines at the 2015 #NHLAllStar game with his famous on-ice selfie during the skills competition. Look for more player reactions and surprises in 2016!
