Shortly after announcing that the Florida Panthers will host the 2021 All-Star Game, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman added that the event could feature a "distinct international flavor."

What that could mean remains to be seen, but the players are intrigued.

"Ooh, that would be cool," Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin told Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press. "I wonder if that would get it more competitive. I'm not sure. It would be interesting."

The current All-Star Game format has been criticized for a perceived lack of effort from players.
