Heading into the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills events, most expected Connor McDavid to regain his Fastest Skater title after Mathew Barzal beat him in 2020. Avalanche phenom Cale Makar was tabbed as the potential usurper this time around. Instead, St. Louis Blues forward Jordan Kyrou surprisingly won the Fastest Skater with a time of 13.55 seconds.

Blues’ Jordan Kyrou beats McDavid, others for Fastest Skater

Kyrou beat out a densely packed Fastest Skater field at the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills competition.

Check out the full Fastest Skater results, with the winner (Blues’ Kyrou) in bold:

Interestingly, Adrian Kempe finished closest to Kyrou, not McDavid. Two skaters finished above 14 seconds: Dylan Larkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov. In Kuznetsov’s case, he really hammed it up after his attempt.

In case you’re wondering, the Oilers shared previous Fastest Skater results from McDavid, who’s won the event three times.

Look back at the 2020 winner: Mathew Barzal, 13.175 seconds
