NHL All-Star Skills Competition, Yup, There's A Hockey Card For That

The 22nd NHL All-Star Skills Competition is being held tonight and what better way to exhibit the event than with a hockey card.

#95 Jason Arnott, Edmonton Oilers
1997-98 Upper Deck Collector's Choice

Jason Arnott represented the Edmonton Oilers as a member of the Western Conference at the 47th National Hockey League All-Star weekend.

The card shown above is from the 1997-98 Upper Deck Collector's Choice set and features Arnott participating in the "Power-Play Relay" segment as part of the Goaltenders Competition Challenge. The Eastern Conference would go on to win the skills competition for the first time since 1992.

Arnott has quite an audience looking on in the background; Bourque, Bondra, Vanbiesbrouck, Alfredsson, Recchi and Scott Stevens to name just a few.
