“We are pleased with the incredible lineup of entertainment that we put together for the 2017 Honda NHL all-star weekend,” said Steve Mayer, NHL chief content officer and executive vice president. “The all-star weekend will feature three days of can’t-miss events, including THE NHL100 celebration on Friday night, in a weekend where hockey takes over Hollywood.

“We are excited for Nick Jonas, Fifth Harmony and Carly Rae Jepsen’s all-star game performances for our fans in L.A and those watching around the world.”

Jepsen, from Mission, B.C., will open the pre-game festivities at Los Angeles’s Staples Center on Sunday, Jan. 29 with a performance of the Canadian national anthem followed by Fifth Harmony’s rendition of the American national anthem.

Jonas will have a live performance during the second intermission.

The league will also honour the 100 Greatest NHL Players on Friday in a ceremony hosted by Hamm.
