Details on the skills competition

NHL commish announces revamped All-Star Skills event

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman joins “SportsCenter” to discuss how Connor McDavid helped the NHL revamp the All-Star skills competition.

Unlike in years past, where every All-Star would compete in at least one event, the new format will see just 12 All-Stars duking it out in a series of eight events, with points earned for placement in each. The player who has the most points at the end will receive $1 million.

The participants this year are: David PastrnakNathan MacKinnonCale MakarLeon DraisaitlConnor McDavidMathew BarzalNikita KucherovAuston MatthewsWilliam NylanderElias PetterssonQuinn Hughes and J.T. Miller.

The first eight players to compete will be identified by the NHL’s hockey ops department and the NHLPA; fans will vote in the final four (only All-Stars are eligible to be voted in).

The events for the 2024 All-Star skills competition are:

  • Fastest skater
  • Hardest shot
  • Stickhandling
  • One-timers
  • Passing challenge
  • Accuracy shooting
  • The NHL shootout (top eight)
  • The NHL obstacle course (top six)

Each player will choose four of the first six events in which to compete; the lowest scoring players after the first six events will be eliminated. For the shootout, the remaining eight players get to select which goalie they will shoot against. The top six scores after that event move on to the final stage, the obstacle course, where point totals are doubled.
