There was no All-Star contest during the calendar year of 1966 because the game was moved from the start of season to mid-season.

 In 1979, the Challenge Cup series between the Soviet Union and Team NHL replaced the All-Star Game.

In 1987, Rendez-Vous ‘87, two games between the Soviet Union and Team NHL replaced the All-Star Game. In 1995 and 2005 the All-Star Game was not played due to a labour disruption affecting the NHL.

In both 2006 and 2010 the All-Star Game was not played because of NHL players’ participation in the Olympics.
