The 44th NHL All-Star Game was the last All-Star game to take place at the Montreal Forum on February 6, 1993 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Before the start of the game there was a tribute to Mario Lemieux who was in attendance, but was unable to play due to his treatments for Hodgkin's Disease.
Mike Gartner would take Mark Messier's place in the All-Star lineup and ended up becoming the fourth player in All-Star history to score four goals in one game and becoming All-Star M.V.P., the first New York Ranger so honored.
The final score was Wales Conference 16, Campbell Conference 6. This was also the first All-Star Game in which the San Jose Sharks sent a representative.
Super Skills CompetitionEdit
The Campbell Conference would win their first Skills Competition since the 1990 Skills Competition after going through a penalty shot tie-breaker.
Al Iafrate won the Hardest Shot event slapping the puck at 105.2 mph, which held the record as Hardest Shot for 16 years until it was broken in 2009 by Zdeno Chara who shot 105.4 mph which he improved to 105.9 mph in 2011 and again to 108.8 mph in 2012.
