The unquestioned star of the night was rookie Mark Scheifele, who, along with fellow freshface Jacob Trouba, was the star of the show, often being the butt of teammate jokes during in-game commentary. And yet, it was enjoyable for the Barrie Colts grad.
"To do something like this where it's more of a relaxed atmosphere is really fun," Mark Scheifele said."
The most popular event of the night, however, may have been the Hardest Shot competition. During the contest, two Winnipeg Jets hit the 100 mph mark, first Jacob Trouba and later eventual winner Anthony Peluso.
"When I was younger I always had a hard shot," Peluso said. "This is the second time in my life I got to do it (be in the competition) and it's always fun."
More than 12,000 fans rook in the competition, which saw the rink's side boards removed, allowing fans plenty of opportunities to meet their heroes and get autographs.
The ultimate benefactors of the night, however, were the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation and the NHL Goals and Dreams Fund, with proceeds benefiting the two charities.
The winners of the individual competitions were:
Fastest Skater: Mark Scheifele
Accuracy Shooting: Bryan Little
Harest Shot: Anthony Peluso
