Honda Breakaway Challenge

Winner: Team Foligno (Final score: 1-0)

  • There were a ton of different moves that were pulled off during the breakaway challenge, but we'll highlight some of the best ones on the night.
  • Vladimir Tarasenko and Brian Elliott started it off with a bang by taking a selfie as Tarasenko came in with his shot attempt. Oh, it gets better. Shortly after, Elliott wound up tweeting the picture from his Twitter account, which was pretty awesome.
  • Ryan Johansen easily had two of the best shootout attempts, and wound up winning the event for Team Foligno. Johansen's first attempt saw him take off his jersey to reveal an Ohio State football jersey, and he capped it off with some slick moves between his skates.
  • Probably one of the best moments of the night came on Johansen's second attempt, where he stopped the puck just inside the hash marks. After that, he went back to center ice to grab a little kid from the bench, and let him tap the puck into the empty net. It was a nice little gesture from Johansen, and gave that kid something to remember for the rest of his life.
  • Following in Johansen's footsteps, Jakub Voracek did the exact same same move but instead of grabbing a little kid, he took Johnny Gaudreau. The winner was voted on by the fans, and to no one's surprise, Ryan Johansen came away with the win, and gave Team Foligno the 1-0 win.

  • In the final heat, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews went head to head, and Kane came away with the fastest time of the event at 13.5 seconds. Despite Team Foligno dominating in all four rounds, Kane was able to squeak out a single point with his fastest time.
