The NHL Skills Competition will get underway at 4 p.m. PST Saturday on NBCSN, featuring six rounds of various types of play. If you're a cable subscriber, you can also watch the skills competition online.
The competitions are as follows:
- Bridgestone NHL Fastest Skater
- Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge
- DraftKings NHL Accuracy Shooting
- Gatorade NHL Skills Challenge Relay
- AMP Energy NHL Hardest Shot
- Discover NHL Shootout
Extended breakdowns of each event can be found on the NHL website. Unfortunately it appears there's no fighting competition, because I like the Western Conference's odds with John Scott on the squad. Each All-Star will take part in at least one of the events.
If you're looking for one more way to rankle the NHL, look no further than the Breakaway Challenge.
As soon as the last competitor completes his routine, fans in-arena and watching on television in the U.S. and Canada will get another opportunity to make their case on Twitter by casting their vote using the hashtag that corresponds to the player of their choice. The shooter with the highest fan vote will be crowned the Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge winner and score one point for his team.
I'm not suggesting anything, but...well, you do you.
