The 13th game was a year where a few of the game's top stars were notably absent from the game, due to a new NHL ruling that players be signed under contract in order to play in the all-star game. The intention of this clause was to intimidate players who were holding out from their team, a tactic that worked for [[Dickie Moore]], [[Frank Mahovlich]] and [[George Armstrong (ice hockey)|George Armstrong]], yet failed for others, resulting in All-Star coach [[Punch Imlach]] being unable to choose six of the best players ([[Tim Horton]], [[Dick Duff]], [[Bobby Hull]], [[Tod Sloan (ice hockey)|Tod Sloan]], [[Pierre Pilote]] and [[Bob Pulford]]). Combined with six Habs being named to the First and Second team All-Stars, this meant that coach Imlach had to fill the voids with inferior players.

The subsequent snubbing of these players also went into the pre-game festivities, as they were also denied the multitude of gifts that traditionally was given to players in the game, including those already with their names engraved on it.

It is also to be noted that it was [[Maurice Richard]]'s 13th consecutive appearance, making him the only player to date who has appeared in all of the all-star games. He would retire after winning the Cup that year. Montreal goaltender [[Jacques Plante]] also appeared in the game without a mask, despite his intention of wearing one throughout the season.
