Fastest Skater

Jonathan Drouin earned the fastest lap, as Team Foligno swept the fastest skater competition. Jiri Sekac outpaced Aaron Ekblad in his heat.

Team Foligno
Skater Time
1. Phil Kessel 13.596
2. Jonathan Drouin 13.103
3. Jiri Sekac 13.683
4. Zemgus Girgensons 14.101
Team Toews
Skater Time
1. Tyler Seguin 13.631
2. Mike Hoffman 13.163
3. Aaron Ekblad 14.048
4. Vladimir Tarasenko 14.386

The score after the event was 5-0 for Team Foligno. Every single player avoided the dreaded fall...except for Tarasenko.

Breakaway challenge

Due to some fantastic home town pandering, Ryan Johansen was voted the winner of the breakaway challenge by the fans.  With the point Team Foligno led Team Toews 6-0.

The most entertaining attempt had to be Jakub Voracek, who emulated Johansen's earlier attempt by picking up a small kid (Johnny Gaudreau) before the shot. I bet the little guy will always remember what Voracek did for him.
