Video: 1991 NHL All-Star Weekend

Year: 1991
Length: 11 minutes

This video clip  shows highlights from the 1991 NHL All-Star Weekend  January 17 to 19, 1991 in Chicago. It is from a  VHS tape that the Chicago Blackhawks sent their season ticket holders.

There are many interviews with great players like Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Jeremy Roenick and Mark Messier. It also addresses the controversy of goaltender Ed Belfour being snubbed as an All-Star selection.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s in the video:

  • 0:10 to 1:45 – All-Star skills clinic & autograph session
  • 1:46 to 4:05 – Heroes of Hockey Game
  • 4:06 to 7:47 – NHL Skills Competition
  • 7:48 to 10:55 – 42nd NHL All-Star Game

The video is a bit long, so I understand if you don’t want to watch it. However, I took a screen shot from the 2:20 mark:

Yes! My 15-year old self is in the background of Dennis Hull’s interview. 

This was after the All-Star skills clinic held on Thursday. I honestly don’t remember seeing myself back in the video “back in the day,” so I was quite surprised to see this while digitizing the footage.
