The National Hockey League (NHL®) today announced the player assignments for the 2018 GEICO NHL All-Star Skills Competition™. The 2018 NHL All-Stars will compete in six events showcasing their talent on tonight at 7 p.m. ET at AMALIE Arena in Tampa, Fla., home of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 2018 GEICO NHL All-Star Skills Competition™ will be televised on NBCSN in the U.S. and on CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada. All six events of the 2018 GEICO NHL All-Star Skills Competition™ will be individual competitions, with the winner of each event earning $25,000.
Eight skaters will compete in the Enterprise NHL Fastest Skater™. Each skater will be timed for one full lap around the rink. The skater may choose the direction of their lap and can be positioned a maximum of three feet behind the start line located on the penalty box side of the center red line. The skater must start on the referee’s whistle and the timing clock will start when the skater crosses the start line. In the event of a clock malfunction, the official time will be recorded by the referee’s stopwatch. The skater with the fastest time is the winner of the Enterprise NHL Fastest Skater™, and if there is a tie for the fastest time, the tied players will skate another lap to determine the winner.
The night before the NHL All-Star Game players will compete in six events during the skills competition. This year’s skills competition will shake things up with two new events and some minor changes to some old favorites.
The hardest shot and fastest skater will remain, but new events will showcase other parts of the game, such as passing and goaltending.
The competition will change from its one-on-one race format to a time trail for a full lap around the ice. Eight players will choose which direction they skate. The player with the fastest time wins. In the event of a tie, players will skate a second lap to determine the winner.
