Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid and Washington Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin were among the winners Saturday night in the 2018 NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

It marked the first year of a new format for the annual showcase, which features NHL All-Stars battling in a variety of skills challenges. Instead of a team contest, each individual had an opportunity to win $25,000 for finishing first in any of the six events.

Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, Calgary Flames winger Johnny Gaudreau, Vancouver Canucks winger Brock Boeser and St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo also took home one of those bonus checks from the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
