2022 NHL All-Star Skills: Participants announced for fastest skate, hardest shot and more


The NHL announced on Friday the players who will participate in the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills Contest. The All-Star Skills will consist of seven events and will take place in Las Vegas, which will host this year’s All-Star festivities.

Two of the events are new and will be a flavor of Las Vegas for them. The Fountain Face-Off will take place in the infamous Bellagio Fountains while the 21 in 22 will take place directly on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Five traditional events will also be included in the 2022 All-Star Skills, which are Fastest Skater, Save Streak, Hardest Shot, Breakaway Challenge (which returns for the first time since 2016), and Accuracy Shooting.

Manon Rheaume (who in 1992 became the first woman to play in an NHL game) and actor Wyatt Russell will all compete in the Breakaway Challenge. Meanwhile, three-time Olympic medalist Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson will compete in the Fountain Face-off and will also compete in the marksmanship event.

The winner of each event throughout the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills will take home $30,000.

Here are the participants for each individual event:
