There are a total of seven events at the Skills Challenge and two new ones have been added. The Discover NHL Fountain Face-Off will take place on the Fountains of the Bellagio Casino and Hotel, and the Las Vegas NHL 21 in ‘22 will take place on Las Vegas Boulevard. On top of those two new events, the returning events should be familiar to you. We’ve got the Fastest Skater competition, the Breakaway Challenge, Hardest Shot, Save Streak for goalies and Shooting Accuracy.

The individual winners of each event will be awarded $30,000. There are four special guests for the event. Anaheim Ducks forward Trevor Zegras, Manon Rhéaume, the first women goalie to ever play in the NHL, and actor Wyatt Russell (who starred in the movie Goon 2: Last of the Enforcers). They will partake in the Breakaway Challenge. Three-time Olympic medalist Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson will be in the Fountain Face-Off and help with the accuracy shooting event.
