2024 NHL All-Star Skills Competition Betting Odds and Predictions

The Boston Bruins and the NHL are officially on their All-Star break this weekend with the yearly event and festivities taking place at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

The tournament itself, a format that’s been in place since 2016, will be played on Saturday but first, the all-new revamped Skill Challenge will take place on Friday night.

Each of the 12 NHLers participating will compete in four of the following six events, earning points for their respective finish:

1. Fastest skater

2. Hardest shot

3. Stickhandling

4. One-timers

5. Passing challenge

6. Accuracy shooting

The top eight point scorers will then participate in a shootout, featuring all eight All-Star goalies, and then the top six will compete in an obstacle course, with the previous seven events included to crown a winner.

Wanna bet on it? You can at FanDuel Sportsbook! Here are the odds, with a pick for each, for some of the events and the outright winner on Friday night:
