Decker to get paid after NHL All-Star skills demonstration

2019 NHL All Star- Media Day

The gold-medal victor and USA Hockey star demonstrated the premier passer event at the NHL All-Star skills competition in San Jose, Calif., on Friday night and recorded a time three seconds faster than the NHL victor, Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers (1 minute, 9.088 seconds).

The U.S. women's national hockey team member recorded a time of just 66 seconds, beating out the eight NHL players in the competition - including victor Leon Draisaitl, who finished three seconds slower than Decker.

"It was literally a couple of hours before the skills competition I found out I was doing the fastest skater", Coyne Schofield told The.

The 2018 Olympic gold medalist and Palos Heights native was asked to fill in for Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon, who has a bruised foot, in the NHL All-Star Skills Competition's Fastest Skater challenge. It was the seventh best time out of the eight competitors (seven NHL All-Stars), beating Arizona Coyotes forward Clayton Keller.

But, police say, he is in good spirits and has been reunited with his family. His family searched for him for 45 minutes before calling 911, Hughes said.

While the 27-year-old Decker's 1:06 was the fastest completion of the course, Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl was declared the victor with a time of 1:09 during Friday's event.

Draisaitl, like all Friday's event winners, earned a $25,000 bonus, which sparked some outrage among the hockey world. "Wow. That's really impressive". A hashtag was soon born, encouraging the National Hockey League to #PayDecker.

Instead of Draisaitl or the NHL stepping up and rightfully awarding Decker the prize, CCM Hockey, which sponsors Decker, awarded her the $25,000.

Decker later tweeted her thanks to the company.
