NHL All-Star skills competition 2018: Live updates and winners, event by event

Unlike past years, the fastest skater competition will not be a direct head-to-head format. One player chooses which direction he wants to take and then races around the outside of the rink against the clock. One of two brand-new events this year, the Passing Challenge presents players with three different types of drills to measure who moves the puck the quickest and most accurately.

The player who completes the three skills in the fastest time takes home the cash prize. Player must complete four successful passes to targets that randomly light up.

Player must successfully complete the four required passes through the course. Player must complete a pass into each of four mini nets and the game net. The other new event is the save streak, which replaces the shootout competition. Now, this is a straight-up goalie competition to see who can make the most saves in a row. Each goalie will face at least nine shooters, but their turn cannot end on a save. The goalie who makes the most consecutive saves against oncoming shooters will win the competition.

The player who completes the course with the fastest time will be named the winner. Skater controls a puck through a series of eight pucks. Skater with a puck skates through a series of eight cones. As skater approaches each gate, one rung of the gate will light up and the player is required to shoot or otherwise guide the puck through the lit rung.
