Aucoin leads Team White to win

For the second year in a row, Adrian Aucoin blasted the hardest shot(102.2 mph) at the Calgary Flames Danone Super Skills Competition.

The Skinny: For the second year in a row, Adrian Aucoin blasted the hardest shot (102.2 mph) at the Calgary Flames Danone Super Skills Competition. With help from minor hockey players from Southern Alberta, Aucoin led Team White to a 13-10 victory over Team Red.

The Quote: “It’s been proven before that the hardest shot doesn’t score the most goals, but when in doubt put it through the guy,” said Aucoin of his approach to his lethal shot with his wooden stick.

The Second Quote: “Hopefully maybe I get on the power play with it,” said Flames tough guy Andre Roy, who finished second in the hardest-shot competition with a blast of 101.8 mph.

The Speedsters: Although he bested his time from last year, Matthew Lombardi finished second in the fastest-skater competition to Curtis Glencross, who completed a lap of the Saddledome ice in 13.542 seconds.

The Sharp Shooters: Michael Cammalleri hit four targets in five shots to win the shooting accuracy competition. Iginla and defenceman Adam Pardy also broke all four targets, but it took them eight shots each.

The Relays: Team White won the breakaway relay competition 6-5, while Team Red responded with a 2-1 triumph in the puck control relay. Eric Nystrom then beat Dustin Boyd in a head-to-head battle of speed and puck control skills.

The Cause: All proceeds from the event, which garnered more than 14,000 in ticket sales, will benefit the Flames Foundation for Life and the NHLPA’s Goals & Dreams Fund.
