NHL Skills Contest: Twelve stars compete for $1 million in a new format

TORONTO — Connor McDavid was named the fourth-fastest skater of his career on Friday night, as the Edmonton Oilers star center flew during a skills competition on the sidelines of the NHL All-Star Game.

McDavid set the fastest lap in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and did not participate in practice last year.

This year, he completed the lap in 13.408 seconds, one-tenth of a second ahead of Mathew Barzal of the New York Islanders, who clocked a time of 13.519 seconds.

The standings were completed in order by Quinn Hughes of the Vancouver Canucks (14.088 seconds), Cale Makar of the Colorado Avalanche (14.089 seconds), and William Nylander of the Toronto Maple Leafs (14.164).

The skills competition will take on a new form this year in Toronto, as the 12 participants will try to get their hands on a $1 million purse.

Each of the 12 competitors will participate in four of the first six events: fastest skater, strongest shot, puck agility, one-timer, passing accuracy and shooting accuracy.

For each event, first place will allow you to get 5 points. The second will have 4 points on his score, and so on.

The first elimination will take place before the seventh event, in which 8 players will participate. This test will be the escape test in front of the goalkeeper.

Six players will advance to the final stage, the obstacle course. This will include all skills, and will be worth double the points of previous tests.
