He scored a couple goals last night at the skills competition.

Bertuzzi also finished fifth in accuracy shooting.

But maybe he should’ve been in the hardest shot competition instead?

Fastest. Man. Ever.

Mathew Barzal won the fastest skater competition in 13.175, which means Dylan Larkin is still the fastest skater in NHL history.

Sorry, Canada. It’s still not Connor McDavid (who didn’t even win)!

Griffin-dor

Filip Zadina had two goals and an assist in the Griffins 4-3 OT victory last night.

NHL experts pick our favorite All-Star moments, suggestions for new events, and bold predictions | ESPN

Sachin Chandan, fantasy hockey editor: So, I wasn’t alive to see this moment, but I love watching clips of Gordie Howe’s final All-Star game in 1980, when he returned to Joe Louis Arena in Detroit for the game. Howe, at the time a Hartford Whaler, received a four-minute standing ovation, a reminder that at its core, the All-Star game is for the fans.

Great moment.

Bettman: NHL Puck and player tracking to start in playoffs | TSN

Commissioner Gary Bettman said Friday that puck and player tracking will be up and running in all playoff arenas this spring and is expected to be fully operational leaguewide next season.

“There will be more data than ever before,” Bettman said. “I believe the players will generate something like 200 data points per second and the puck 2,000 data points a second, so in terms of getting inside the game, telling stories, as a fan delving in to get what you’re interested in, you’re going to be able to do more things than ever before and even imaginable.”

Sounds good to me.
