Another 2022 NHL All-Star Skills competition is in the books. After an understated start, Trevor Zegras & Co. really stole the show during the “Breakaway Challenge.”
Along with that elaborate event, there were plenty of surprises, particularly in the fastest skater competition. This post collects the winners, results, and videos for the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills night.
Hardest shot, fastest skater, accuracy shooting winners at 2022 NHL All-Stars event
Let’s go over winners of the returning/more “traditional” events at the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills competition.
2020 winner: Mathew Barzal, 13.175 seconds
Here are the results of the hardest shot competition, which Victor Hedman won with a slapper at 103.2 mph.
2020 winner: Shea Weber, 106.5 mph
Ending the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills event, Sebastian Aho won the accuracy shooting competition by hitting all four targets in 10.937 seconds. The event included four passers, including Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson.
Check out the rather wide variety of results from the accuracy shooting event:
2020 winner: Aho’s Hurricanes teammate Jaccob Slavin, 9.505
NHL SAVE STREAK
4. Metropolitan – Fredrick Anderson, Carolina Hurricanes, Tristan Jarry, Pittsburgh Penguins – 2
2020 winner: Jordan Binnington, 10
Werenski wins Fountain Face-off; Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson shines
Judging by Jonathan Huberdeau‘s bumpy start, the players took some time to get the feel for the “Fountain Face-off.”
The results started to really ramp up as it went along, though, especially when Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson put on a clinic.
Hockey blackjack (“21 in 22”)
In the other new event, Joe Pavelski won hockey blackjack (aka “21 in 22”), an event that felt like an interesting tweak on the accuracy shooting competition.
Manon Rhéaume and Wyatt Russell served as goalies in the show-stealing “Breakaway Challenge.” You can read more about Alex Pietrangelo “winning” it, but Trevor Zegras won hearts with an astounding goal that referenced “Dodgeball.” Watch the highlights in the video above this post’s headline, as it’s a true treat.
2016 winner: P.K. Subban
