While Dylan Larkin wasn't an all-star selection this year and couldn't defend his record (13.172 seconds) we were still excited to see how Connor McDavid would do in this challenge.
Two players from each team tested their speed, facing off against an opponent in a two-skater race. The race track for the head-to-head match-ups is the border of the rink split in half lengthways. Timing devices recorded each skater to determine the winner of each match. If a race ends in a tie, each of the teams were awarded one point. The skater with the fastest time in the head-to-head match-ups skated a full lap of the outside border of the rink, in the direction of their choosing, in an attempt to break Dylan Larkin's record.
