Snoop Dogg is all about just chilling out, and it ain’t a real party until Snoop arrives and gives everyone his blessing. The hip-hop singer turned cooking show television star will be doing both of those thing when he hops behind the turntables to help open up the 2017 Coors Light NHL All-Star Skills Competition this Saturday at the Staples Center.

According to an announcement made by the NHL on Wednesday for their upcoming all-star festivities this weekend, Snoop will join previously announced performers including John Legend, Robin Thicke, Nick Jonas, and Carly Rae Jepsen, as artists who will be on hand to really make the weekend special for hockey fans.

The legendary west coast rapper will be performing his set straight from the ice during player introductions, before the All-Stars showcase their hockey talents in six events. The entire event will be broadcasted live on NBCSN in the U.S. and on CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada this Saturday, January 28, at 7p ET.
