On January 24, 1999, the American Hockey League (AHL) held its All-Star Skills Competition at the First Union Center in Philadelphia, Pa. The events that took place had the Team Canadian All-Stars vs. Team PlanetUSA All-Stars. The two teams took part in 7 events: In Glas Co Puck Control Relay, Vic Ambush, Bauer Fastest Skater, Sher-Wood Hardest Shot, Sher-Wood Rapid Fire, Sher-Wood Accuracy Shooting, and Sher-Wood Breakaway Relay.

The IcePro Skills Competition started at 7:00 pm. with an introduction of the players and then the other events. Some of the events had some local players competing against each other. What a shame to have it so late at night! The league is geared to getting the kids out, but the next day is a school day. On Monday (1/25), the All-Star Game does not start until 8:00 pm.
