Las vigas — Sebastian Aho | Got some tips from teammate Carolina Hurricanes Jacob Slavin To win the Honda NHL Accuracy Shooting in the 2022 NHL All-Star Skills Championship presented by DraftKings Sportsbook at T-Mobile Arena on Friday.

“Actually, he gave me some advice, but it was a little different because all the pucks were in the middle,” Aho said. “So he just told me to shoot as fast as you can, don’t press too much if you miss one or not. I was thinking about that, but they gave us passes instead.”

The striker did not miss anything, hitting all four goals in as many shots in 10.937 seconds. Slavin, a defensive man, won the event with a time of 9.505 seconds at the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills Championship in St. Louis.

“I don’t know if he went 4 vs 4 in front of me. I hope he isn’t,” Hurricanes goalkeeper Frederic Andersen He said it. “He’s obviously a good shooter, so when you give you time to level a tablet like this, I think it’s going to be pretty accurate.”

Nine players took part in the event, each shooting at four targets located at the corners of a grid 25 feet apart.

“I think you exercise every day on guys like [Andersen]Ahu, he said, this is not easy. I definitely think it’s easier to hit those goals than to achieve them [shoot it] Get past those goalkeepers.”
