The Oilers held their annual Skills Competition on Sunday. Team White took down Team Blue by a score of 19-12. It was the three-on-three game at the end of the event that helped White run away with the competition, with them scoring seven goals over two six-minute periods.
Things started off with White taking a 3-2 lead through two races in the puck control relay. Jordan Eberle edged Leon Draisaitl one-on-one to give White the point for the individual portion.
Draisaitl had the last laugh, winning fastest skater with a time of 14.537.
Then came the hardest shot competition. Team Blue’s Russian defenceman Nikita Nikitin hammered a shot that went 101.1 mph. Luke Gazdic, who won last year, was clocked at 100.9 and 100.7 mph for Team Blue.
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and David Perron each went 4-for-4 on the shooting accuracy trial. Both skated for Team White.
The Oilers rounded things out with a 3-on-1 event and king of the shootout competition, before finishing the day with the three-on-three game.
