Fastest SkaterThe faster skater will be determinded by a timed lap around the entire length of the rink. Eight players will get to choose which direction they would like to skate and the skater with the fastest of the eight times is the winner. In the event of a tie, the two (or more) tied skaters will do an additional lap to decide the winner.Premier PasserEight players will compete in this challenge. The first of three events is target passing, with players completing passes to targets that light up randomly. Once complete, each player moves on to the neutral zone, where he must complete four give-and-go passes. The final event is to complete saucer passes over obstacles and into miniature nets. The player who completes all three tasks in the fastest time wins.Save StreakThe save streak is a goaltending competition. Five goaltenders will compete against teams of opposing divisions with the goal of making the most consecutive saves on at least nine shootout attempts. A goaltender’s round in the competition cannot end on a save, so if the captain’s shot is stopped, then the goalie continues to face shooters until a goal is scored. If the divisional captain scores on the ninth attempt of the round, the round is over. The goaltender with the longest consecutive save streak at the end of the round is the winner. In the event of a tie, the goaltender with the most overall saves wins.

The skater with the fastest time through the obstacle course wins.Hardest ShotSix players will compete in the hardest shot competition. Each shooter will attempt two shots per round and his fastest shot of the two will be recorded. After each player’s first attempt, the order of shots for second attempts will be based on the speed in the first round, with the slowest shooting first.
