  • Skills challenge relay

Final score: Team Alfredsson 21, Team Chara 12


Fastest skater -- Winner: Carl Hagelin

One skater from each team is positioned side-by-side on the start line. Both skaters race toward the same end zone, both turn outward, skate to the opposite end zone, turn back and skate past center ice to the finish line. There are five preliminary races and the player posting the fastest time from each team will meet in one final match race. Six team points are available.

Breakaway challenge -- Winner: Patrick Kane

A test of creativity, each skater gets three shots with no limits on the breakaway. Shooters can start their attempt from anywhere in the offensive zone and penalty shot rules do not apply. Fans will be able to vote by text message.

Accuracy Shooting -- Winner: Jamie Benn

From 25 feet away, shooters take aim at four foam targets attached to the inner side of the goalposts. The objective is to hit all four targets in the fastest time. The players with the fastest time from each team will go head-to-head in the final round for the title. Five team points are available, one to the winner of each individual matchup.

Skills challenge relay -- Winner: Team Alfredsson

This timed relay will showcase the one-timer, passing, puck control, stick-handling and accuracy shooting. In the one-timer event, three shooters must score three goals over an eight inch barrier. In the passing event, one passer must complete a pass into each of six nets set up around the rink. In the puck control event, one skater will maneuver through a series of obstacles. In the stick-handling event, one skater will control the puck through a series of obstacles. In the accuracy shooting event, one player will take aim at four targets. Each skill must be complete before moving to the next skill. The group with the fastest time will score one point and the team with the fastest combined time will earn one bonus point.

Hardest shot -- Winner: Zdeno Chara

Four players will square off in five head-to-head matchups. The players from each team with the hardest single shot will meet in the finals for the title of the NHL's hardest shooter. Five team points are available -- one to the winner of each of the four preliminary matchups and one to the winner of the finale.

Elimination shootout -- Winner: Steven Stamkos

In a game of hockey survivor, 15 players from each side will participate in the shootout. Shooters who score will move on to the next round in the shootout with the goalies rotating after every third shooter. The event continues until only one player scores in a round. Every goal scored will count as one point for his team.
