Skills Competition Recap: Jones shoots hard; Cam skates fast

Seth Jones earned a point for the Metro

In the Fastest Skater competition, Cam Atkinson just barely lost to Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov:

In the Hardest Shot contest, Seth Jones was up against a different Lightning player, Victor Hedman, and beat him with his second shot:

Jones was also part of the Skills Challenge Relay, where he made his second one-timer to help the Metropolitan defeat the Atlantic.

Atkinson was a passer for Sidney Crosby’s best time in the Accuracy Shooting contest.

Because the Atlantic reached the final shootout competition over the Metro, Sergei Bobrovsky did not get to participate in any of the contests tonight.

The Atlantic beat the Pacific 4-1 in the shootout to win the overall event.  As a result, they got to choose which time slot and opponent to face tomorrow. They chose to play the Metro in the second game. That will be the game featuring the Columbus players.

Check in tomorrow for more coverage of that game!
