Jonathan Drouin won’t be playing in Sunday’s All-Star Game, so he did all of his work during the Skills Competition. The Tampa Bay Lightning rookie won the Fastest Skater competition with a time of 13.103 helping Team Foligno grab an early 5-0 lead on Team Toews.

What was Drouin's strategy? "Just balls out pretty much, and make sure you don't fall."

The event began in humorous fashion with a heat between Phil Kessel and Tyler Seguin, because why not. Kessel ended up beating Seguin in a close race.

Drouin’s time is the second fastest ever behind Carl Hagelin’s 13.218 since they revised the event in 2008.

FINAL RESULTS:

Jonathan Drouin 13.103

Mike Hoffman 13.163

Phil Kessel 13.596

Tyler Seguin 13.631

Jiri Sekac 13.683

Aaron Ekblad 14.048

Zemgus Girgensons 14.101

Vladimir Tarasenko 14.386
