Larkin breaks speed record to win Fastest Skater competition

Post  Admin on Sun Jan 31, 2016 3:41 am



On All-Star Saturday in Nashville, Tennessee, Detroit Red Wings rookie forward Dylan Larkin became the fastest skater in the history of the NHL All-Star Skills competition.  Larkin, 19, took advantage of the opportunity he earned to beat the record held by Mike Gartner, finishing his lap in 13.172 seconds during the Bridgestone Fastest Skater competition that opened the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition.

Gartner's record of 13.386 seconds, set at the 1996 NHL All-Star Game, had stood for two decades.  Larkin was not yet born when Gartner, 36, set the record.  Gartner, then with the Toronto Maple Leafs, set the mark on Feb. 4, 1996; Larkin was born on July 30 of that year.

Larkin, along with many others, will be featured in the 2016 NHL All-Star Game this Sunday evening at 5 pm.
