In tonight’s skills competition, Phil Kessel will be taking part in the Fastest Skater competition, Dion Phaneuf will be competing for the Hardest Shot, and Joffrey Lupul will partake in the Elimination Shootout for Team Chara. All three will also take place in the Skills Challenge Relay, where Phaneuf and Lupul will be taking “one timers” and Kessel will be a target shooter.

Here is a breakdown of the rules of the individual contests with very helpful diagrams should you care that much.
