NASHVILLE — The captains have assembled and decided which players will participate in the six events at Saturday’s NHL All-Stars Skills Competition.
— Dustin Byfuglien in the fastest skater should be something to behold. Not because he can’t skate — he’s pretty fleet of foot — but because at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, he’s one of the biggest players at All-Star Weekend.
— Right now, John Scott is set to participate in the hardest shot contest, and the shootout (which all players participate in.)
— Weber will look to defend his hardest shot title after hitting 108.5 mph on the gun last year in Columbus.
