The 2016 Honda NHL® All-Star Game will be a three-game tournament played in a 3-on-3 format.
- The tournament will feature four teams, one team representing each NHL Division: the Pacific, Central, Metropolitan and Atlantic.
- Each team is made up of 11 players from each Division: six forwards, three defensemen and two goaltenders.
- All NHL Rules apply to each game. Each game will be 20 minutes in length, with two 10-minute periods per game.
- There will be a hard whistle at the 10-minute mark of each game. At this time, teams and goalies will change ends.
- Video Review will be used to confirm all goals. NHL Hockey Operations will initiate any potential coach’s challenge reviews.
- All minor penalties will be one-minute in length. Manpower advantages during these penalties will reflect current NHL Rules, where at no time will a team have less than three players on the ice–this may require a fourth and/or fifth skater to be added.
- Games that are tied after 20 minutes will be decided by a shootout using current NHL shootout rules.
- All three games will be officiated by referees Dan O’Rourke and Ian Walsh, and linesman Jonny Murray and Vaughan Rody.
In the first game, the Atlantic Division All-Stars (wearing black) will face the Metropolitan Division All-Stars (wearing white). In the second game, the Central Division All-Stars (wearing black) will face the Pacific Division All-Stars (wearing white). The winner of each semifinal will face-off in the Final.
