Open thread - NHL All-Star Skills Competition

The competitions at the all-star weekend will get started tonight with the skills competition. I am sure we will see lots of goofy things (Jason Spezza is there for one) so it should be an entertaining night.

The event will include the following competitions:

  • Fastest skater
  • Breakaway challenge
  • Accuracy shooting
  • Skills challenge relay
  • Hardest shot
  • Elimination shootout
