Yesterday was the 2012 Molson Canadian NHL All-Star Skills Competition and Keith Yandle did good representing the Phoenix Coyotes. He was involved in two events and performed well in both, and his team won the day with an impressive score of 21 for Team Alfredsson against Team Chara's 12.

In actual hockey play the Pirates, Gladiators and Sundogs all played yesterday and we have some updates on how they all did.

Finally we have some news from the NHL, including the All-Star Skills winners and some general hockey news.
