USA women's hockey star Brianna Decker put on a show in the NHL's skills competition in San Jose, and now she's getting rewarded like an All-Star.
She wasn't the only woman to compete in skill competition. 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.
The two-time Olympian finished the competition in 1:06. Decker didn't just demonstrate the drill, she appeared to post the best overall time (1:06) beating the eventual victor Leon Draisaitl by a full three seconds. As she announced on Twitter hours before the event, Schofield gladly accepted, then proceeded to finish seventh in the race - just one second behind former NHL MVP Connor McDavid. "That is impressive. That's really impressive".
"When she took off, I thought she might have won, the way she was moving", McDavid said.
