Capitals’ Kuznetsov Finishes Last In Fastest Skater Race At 2022 NHL SuperSkills Competition

Washington Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov finished last among eight participants in the fastest skaters race (14.559 seconds) at the 2022 NHL SuperSkills Competition at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Friday night.

St. Louis Blues right-wing Jordan Kyrou (13.55), New York Rangers right-wing Chris Krieder, Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar, Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, Winnipeg Jets right-wing Kyle Connor, and Detroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin all finished ahead of Kuznetsov.

The results from the “fastest skater” competition didn’t seem to phase Kuznetsov. He would follow up the first event with this gem he laid on Tampa Bay Goaltender and Vezina Trophy winner, Andrei Vasilevskiy.

For Kuzy, it was an easy night’s work. Good job, Kuzy!

    Didn’t look like a full effort for 92. He gets a pass on this, though.

    NOt worried abotu where he finished but I wonder where that shot has been all season in the shootout? Still think that he plays when he wants to and if he doesnt feel like it goes about 75%.
