The NHL is reportedly adding more events to its All-Star weekend, highlighted by a three-on-three competition featuring female hockey players.
Per ESPN's Emily Kaplan, the scrimmage will feature top players from America and Canada going head-to-head.
While no participants were named, Kaplan did note all the women will be national team players and are currently members of the Professional Women's Hockey Players' Association.
Kaplan added a new element is expected to be added to the skills competition as part of the changes. A formal announcement from the NHL will likely be made this week.
The three-on-three scrimmage will continue the NHL's recent trend of opening up All-Star weekend to include female players.
Last year saw Kendall Coyne Schofield of the NWHL's Minnesota Whitecaps take part in the All-Star skills competition. She finished seventh out of eight in the fastest skater competition with a time of 14.346 seconds.
The NHL's All-Star weekend will take place at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis from Jan. 24-25.
