The All-Star Game has not been held in various years: 1979 and 1987 due to the 1979 Challenge Cup and Rendez-vous '87 series between the NHL and the Soviet national team, respectively; 1995, 2005 and 2013 as a result of labor stoppages; and 2006, 2010 and 2014 due to the Winter Olympic Games.[28] Los Angeles has hosted two All-Star Games.
