#PayDecker: Fans demand women's hockey star get paid after NHL skills comp

Share

The NHL announced during Saturday night's All-Star Game that it would donate $25,000 to the charity or hockey program of Decker's and Coyne Schofield's choice, as well as the two other women who participated in the skills competition, Renata Fast and Rebecca Johnston. Heck yeah, Coyne Schofield said. "To hear the United States of America chants, everyone erupted when I started".

Coyne was asked by the Colorado Avalanche to replace Nathan MacKinnon in the Fastest Skater Competition.

The NHL "is stepping up to do something for not just Decker, but all of the women that participated in last night's" skills competition, according to TSN's Frank Seravalli. "I thought she might've won the way she was moving". That was largely due to the presence of the women, with four stars from the USA and Canadian national teams invited to participate.

She ranks first in Northeastern hockey history with 141 goals and 249 points. My speed is my strength. Obviously, I was a little nervous. But I knew this was a moment that would break a lot of barriers and change the perception of our game and show support to our game.

Coyne put up a time of 14.346 seconds as the opening skater Friday night.

"She beat me so she's doing something right", Keller said. It was great to see that.

He reached a top speed of 26 miles per hour, according to the NHL's new player tracking technology, narrowly edging out the player drafted behind him in 2015 in Jack Eichel (13.582) who clocked 25 miles per hour.

Brianna Decker will be paid for her efforts in Friday's NHL All-Star Skills competition after all.

McDavid wasn't the only one to be a repeat champion as Johnny Gaudreau won the puck control event for the second straight year.

Lundqvist stopped 12 breakaways in a row to win the save streak competition. He knocked off Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Tampa Bay Lightning, who held the lead through several rounds after stopping the first eight shots he faced. Burns missed the net on his first attempt and had the next fastest time on his second try at 100.6 miles per hour.

Decker finished the competition in 1:06.

"He's such a legend here for everything he's done for the city", Matthews said.
