Fastest Skater: Cale Makar
After the juggernaut that was Connor McDavid finally met his match in the 2022 fastest skater competition, losing out to the St. Louis Blues forward Jordan Kyrou, the field has reset and it could be anyone’s race to win this year. With speedsters scattered across this star-studded event, back the lone defenceman competing in tonight’s event as Cale Makar is a terrific bet to capture the 2023 fastest skater.
Makar has built a reputation as one of the best skaters in the NHL, able to keep the puck on a string as he sifts through the opposition en route to the offensive zone. His skills will certainly translate in this high-speed event as he will have no problem making sharp turns on each corner and quickly turning and burning toward the finish line.
Back the Colorado Avalanche All-Star to add yet another trophy to his already stacked mantle in his young NHL career, hitting the NOS and finishing atop the podium in the fastest skater competition.
Accuracy Shooting: Nikita Kucherov
In arguably the deepest and most competitive field of the NHL All-Star Skills competitions, the accuracy shooting contest is always a competitive and intense event. With a plethora of proven snipers, all lined up and ready to fire, back the Tampa Bay Lightning star forward, Nikita Kucherov to take home the win.
While he may have built his reputation as a gifted passer, Kucherov has no problem lasering his own quick wristers past netminders, able to find even the smallest window of opportunity to capitalize on. Kucherov has played in several high-pressure matchups so don’t expect him to wilt under the pressure and bright lights of All-Star Weekend, instead elevating his game and proving he is one of the top talents on the planet.
Back Kucherov to shoot his way to glory, clinching himself the win for the most accurate shooter as he puts on an awe-inspiring performance for NHL fans across the globe.
Hardest Shot: Alex Ovechkin
Looking to reclaim his title in the hardest shot competition, back the “Great Eight”, Alex Ovechkin to blast his way to victory against formidable competition.
Opening as the favourite to win this year’s event, Ovechkin knows what it takes to win the hardest shot challenge, having secured the win in 2018 after breaking the 100 mph mark. Ovi has built a historic reputation as one of the best scorers the game has ever seen and his trademark slap shot is largely to thank for his success.
Look for Ovechkin to add yet another accolade to his name as he further cements himself as one of the best hockey players to ever step foot on the ice. Back Ovechkin to win the hardest shot competition to score you an easy win on your NHL All-Star skills competition bets.
