We're less than a full work week away from NHL All-Star festivities starting in Nashville, and the league has released the full layout of Saturday's skills competition.
Team captains Alex Ovechkin, Jaromir Jagr, John Scott and Patrick Kane will select their teams from the remaining 40 skaters, and they'll compete in the six different events. With a few exceptions, we won't know who is going to take part in each event; that's for the captains to decide. But we do have everything we need to know about what happens with all six events.
Bridgestone NHL Fastest Skater
Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge
DraftKings NHL Accuracy Shooting
Gatorade NHL Skills Challenge Relay
By far the best part of this event is watching goalies fire pucks into teeny tiny nets from 150 feet away. I felt cheated we didn't get to see Pekka Rinne do this last year. Corey Crawford probably feels the same way this year.
