2019 NHL All-Star Game Preview
For the fourth straight year, the NHL All-Star game won’t feature two teams, but four, divided by division, competing in a three-on-three single-elimination tournament.
Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, who’s third in the NHL with 73 points (29 goals, 44 assists), will captain the Pacific Division for the third year in a row. He led the league in points in each of the last two seasons.
On Friday, McDavid made history by becoming the first player ever to win the fastest skater event at the All-Star skills competition three times. Last year he set a record by becoming the first player to win the event in consecutive seasons.
“It’s fun,” McDavid said of his historic run, according to NHL.com. “It’s always a fun event to participate in. You get to go as fast as you can. Some guys like doing it, some guys don’t. Personally, I like doing it and it’s always fun.”
The 22-year-old’s 13.378-second lap edged Buffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel’s time of 13.582 by .204 seconds.
“There were some fast times tonight, actually,” added McDavid, who skated last. “[Eichel] put up a pretty good time, so I knew I had to skate well.”
McDavid’s Oilers teammate forward Leon Draisaitl claimed victory in the premier passer competition.
“I obviously want him to win,” Draisaitl said of McDavid, per NHL.com. “I see him every day, so the All-Star Games in the past, it wasn’t a fluke. You know, he is pretty fast.”
The 23-year-old forward completed his event in 1:09.088, besting second-place Sebastian Aho of the Carolina Hurricanes (1:18.530).
“Passing has always been my go-to thing,” Draisaitl said, per NHL.com. “That’s what I’m most comfortable doing and that’s something that I work on every practice and try to be accurate with every pass. I guess I just like passing the puck.”
The first-time All-Star is on pace for a career year; with 32 games remaining, his 61 points (27 goals, 34 assists) are 16 off his career high.
“It was a lot of fun getting to meet players you usually battle against and have tough battles with,” Draisaitl added. “Guys that maybe get under your skin at times in games and you maybe get under their skin. … Guys like [Calgary Flames forward] Johnny Gaudreau, I talked to him a little bit, and that’s obviously a battle. They’re all amazing guys and it was a great day.”
Aho, Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche will serve as the other three captains, representing the Metropolitan, Atlantic, and Central, respectively.
