McDavid's results at skills

by Chris Wescott / Head Writer

The Atlantic Division took home the top All-Star Skills Competition prize, besting Connor McDavid's Pacific Division.

However, McDavid did take the top spot in one event. The Oilers captain beat Colorado's Nathan McKinnon head-to-head by a wide margin, finishing at 13.020.

He then took a run at the full lap record, set by Dylan Larkin last year (13.172). McDavid fell just short at 13.310.

McDavid also went 4-for-6 in the accuracy shooting, finishing with a time of 15.640 - good for third fastest behind Sidney Crosby (10.730) and Auston Matthews (12.280).

"I was definitely a little nervous for the fastest skater part and the accuracy shooting," said McDavid. "I think everyone says the same thing in that you just don't want to embarrass yourself. You don't want to take 15 shots to break four targets or you don't want to go out there and fall or put up a bad time. It's more of just avoiding that and if you go out there and do what you do best and do it the best you can, that's all you can ask for."
