The 16th NHL All-Star Game took place at Maple Leaf Gardens on October 6, 1962.
The hometown Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the NHL All-Stars 4–1.
Eddie Shack was named the first ever all-star game MVP as the Toronto Maple Leafs erupted for four goals in the opening period against all-star goaltender Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens.
It was the first victory for the Maple Leafs in the annual classic after falling to the All-Stars in 1947, 1948 and 1949.
In the days leading up to the game, the NHL was worried because Toronto only had two players under contract: rookie Kent Douglas and captain George Armstrong, however, last minute efforts led to all players signing contracts in time to appear in the game.
