2020 Winner — Mathew Barzal (13.175s)
We have a new king of the Fastest Skater event, as Islanders stud Mathew Barzal knocked off three-time defending champion Connor McDavid by a fingernail. Barzal finished just three 1/100th’s of a second off the all-time record set a couple years ago by Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin.

2020 Winner — Jordan Binnington (10 saves)
Hometown hero Jordan Binnington took home this year’s goalie bragging rights, with his streak of 10 straight stops leading the way. None bigger, perhaps, than this sizzler on a Justin Bieber-disguised Tomas Hertl.

ELITE WOMEN’S 3-ON-3 (CAN vs USA)
For the first time ever, 20 of the top women’s players — representing Canada and the USA — squared off in a 20-minute, three-on-three exhibition, and it didn’t disappoint one bit.

When the back-and-forth chaos subsided, it was the Canadian side taking a tight 2-1 affair, with Rebecca Johnston and Mélodie Daoust scoring for Canada. Hilary Knight scored the lone tally for the American squad.
Defending Champ — John Carlson (102.8 mph, 100.8 mph)
Competitors — Mark Giordano, Seth Jones, Shea Weber, Victor Hedman, Elias Pettersson, John Carlson.
2020 Winner — Shea Weber (106.5 mph, 105.9 mph)
Canadiens gun-slinger Shea Weber reclaimed his crown as the NHL’s heaviest shooter, taking down last year’s champ John Carlson with a 106.5 mile-per-hour rip.
The inaugural Shooting Stars event, in which players fire pucks from the rafters to various targets on and over the ice surface, started off a little awkward and certainly had its flaws.
When all was said and done, however, it was an arena-quieting overtime win for Patrick Kane, who edged out Mitch Marner to take the crown.

Marie-Philip Poulin (CAN) — 15 points
Hilary Knight (USA) — 14 points
