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.

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.

Two skilled defensemen reached the final two: Blue Jackets blueliner Zach Werenski and Roman Josi of the Predators. Werenski ultimately ended up winning at 25.634 seconds.

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.
