Zegras to take part in Breakaway Challenge at NHL All-Star Weekend
The NHL will showcase its biggest viral star at the league's All-Star festivities in Las Vegas next month.
Trevor Zegras confirmed Saturday that he's participating in the Breakaway Challenge event in the skills competition.
Zegras wasn't voted into the All-Star tournament, but he's one of the league's most exciting players. The 20-year-old entered Saturday's action ranked third among rookies in goals and assists, as well as second in points. He was also the catalyst of the most talked-about play of the season when he served up an "alley-oop" assist to Sonny Milano in December.
The Breakaway Challenge will make its return this year after being discontinued in 2016.
The 2022 NHL All-Star Skills Competition will take place Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m. ET, while the three-on-three tournament is scheduled for the next day beginning at 3 p.m. ET.
