The All-Star break is upon us but don’t worry I will have you covered starting Thursday from the Nation’s Capital on Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and right here on Maple Leafs Live: All Star Edition.
There are three Leafs taking part in All-Star weekend (Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul and Dion Phaneuf) and we hope to bring you behind the scenes to show you some sights and sounds that you won’t be seeing anywhere else.
The first event is the 2012 NHL Player All-Star Fantasy Draft which is taking place Thursday night at 8 pm. Lupul is an assistant captain for Team Chara and Lupul asked fans on Twitter who should go number one.
While Friday night there isn’t an official event, the players will be busy as it is NHL Media Day. They will also be making appearances throughout the day and we will bring you tons of coverage of their adventures in Ottawa.
Saturday is the 2012 NHL Skills Competition. At this time it’s not known what skills events the players will be taking part in but stay tuned and I will let you know what the Leafs players will be doing.
To wrap up the weekend, it is the 2012 NHL All-Star Game at 4 pm on Sunday.
Stay tuned all weekend. Got to run, I leave at 8am Thursday morning.
