Published December 29, 2022 at 12:09

The Edmonton Oilers have returned from a relaxing holiday vacation, along with a victory against the Calgary Flames in the Battle of Alberta. And to top it all off, they held the annual skills competition. Unfortunately, it wasn't televised, and the Oilers forced some viewers to subscribe to a news channel in order to see it. But don't worryŚwe've got you covered!


The Oilers held a fastest skater competition which consisted of two laps, each player was timed on how fast they took.. but McDavid wasn't the fastest!?

You heard that right, McDavid wasn't even in the top 5 of fastest skaters on the Oilers, but it is quite obvious he wasn't giving it his all, and let his teammates have a chance.

Oilers Skills Comp Results:

Fastest Skater (two laps):

1. M. Niemelainen - 26.27
2. K. Yamamoto - 26.72
3. D. Holloway - 26.92
4. J. Hamblin - 26.92
5. M. Janmark - 27.00
6. K. Kostin - 27.09
