Notes…

— The Skills Challenge Relay and NHL Shootout will be manned by a variety of skaters. To see the full list of participants, click here for the West and here for the East.

— Dustin Byfuglien in the fastest skater should be something to behold. Not because he can’t skate — he’s pretty fleet of foot — but because at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, he’s one of the biggest players at All-Star Weekend.

— Right now, John Scott is set to participate in the hardest shot contest, and the shootout (which all players participate in.)

— Weber will look to defend his hardest shot title after hitting 108.5 mph on the gun last year in Columbus.
