The NHL has unveiled its first-ever outdoor All-Star Game skills competition events, scheduled for Friday in Las Vegas.

The Discover NHL Fountain Face-Off will be staged at the Fountains of Bellagio. Eight participants will travel by boat to a “rink” in the fountain. They must successfully shoot pucks as quickly as possible into five targets placed in the water — fighting through the spray of the nearby fountains. Qualifying players move to the head-to-head final.

One of the participants in this event will be three-time Olympic medalist Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, as the NHL continues its recent trend of getting more women’s hockey players involved in All-Star Weekend events.

The Las Vegas NHL 21 in ’22 skills competition will shut down part of Las Vegas Boulevard.
