The NHL will showcase its biggest viral star at the league's All-Star festivities in Las Vegas next month.

Trevor Zegras confirmed Saturday that he's participating in the Breakaway Challenge event in the skills competition.

Zegras wasn't voted into the All-Star tournament, but he's one of the league's most exciting players. The 20-year-old entered Saturday's action ranked third among rookies in goals and assists, as well as second in points. He was also the catalyst of the most talked-about play of the season when he served up an "alley-oop" assist to Sonny Milano in December.

The Ducks will now have three representatives at T-Mobile Arena. Anaheim goaltender John Gibson was selected on the initial ballot, and forward Troy Terry made it in as one of the final four.

The Breakaway Challenge will make its return this year after being discontinued in 2016.

The 2022 NHL All-Star Skills Competition will take place Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m. ET, while the three-on-three tournament is scheduled for the next day beginning at 3 p.m. ET.
