Which players are competing in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition?

These 12 players have been selected to compete against one another in this year's challenge. This includes the final two players named to the grouping, both from the Vancouver Canucks, after fans voted their players into the challenge.

Here's the field of 12 who will compete for $1 million:

- David Pastrnak (BOS)
- Nathan MacKinnon (COL)
- Cale Makar (COL)
- Leon Draisaitl (EDM)
- Connor McDavid (EDM)
- Jack Hughes (NJ)
- Nikita Kucherov (TB)
- Auston Matthews (TOR)
- William Nylander (TOR)
- Quinn Hughes (VAN)
- J.T, Miller (VAN)
- Elias Pettersson (VAN)

Detroit Red Wings forward Alex DeBrincat did not make the cut.

Sadly, Alex DeBrincat did not get named to the All-Star Skills Competition roster and will not be competing in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition this year. However, the Detroit Red Wings scoring threat is not short on skills at all. He's been performing exceptionally well in his new home and finally grabbed a big goal after a bit of a drought, scoring against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

DeBrincat's got plenty more time here in Detroit to get back to another NHL All-Star Game and compete in an NHL All-Star Skills Competition. Either way, fans will tune in and see DeBrincat represent Detroit and the Red Wings in this year's NHL All-Star Weekend.
