The festivities kicked off on Friday with the skills competition, which featured six events. The big upset was Connor McDavid losing his crown in the fastest skater competition, which he had won the prior three years. A faux “Justin Beiber” also made an appearance, taking a shot on St. Louis goalkeeper Jordan Binnington during the Save Streak contest, making light of the keeper’s rivalry with the singer on social media.
The all-star women also got involved with their own 3-on-3 exhibition during the skills competition afternoon. That was a delight to “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky.
“Exposure is everything,” Gretzky told ESPN. “It’s baby steps. You’re not going to flood the market overnight. It takes time to get into the markets and get more youth girls to participate in hockey. It’s very important that there’s an understanding from the National Hockey League that we want to help grow women’s hockey and make girls hockey bigger and better than it’s ever been. So I think the commissioner and the NHL have done a tremendous thing by bringing these women out.”
