The Fastest Skater in the NHL in 2016… Possibly Ever?

Now I didn’t think Mike Gartner’s all-time NHL record would be broken and I don’t know how everyone is so surprised that Dylan Larkin is the fastest skater. WATCH A RED WINGS GAME AND SEE THE KID PLAY!! Not that it’s breaking news now, but this kid can fly and he’s a huge reason why the Red Wings are in the position they are in at the moment. An NHL superstar in the making for sure and I can’t wait to see him line up with the plethora of future stars in the World Cup this summer.

The only guy that I can think that might be faster…

Connor McDavid
Maybe 2017 will be Connor’s…

A little disappointed Hallsy wasn’t the fastest on his team but kudos to him regardless. Hope he can have a good one in the actual NHL All-Star game. Hat-Trick Hallsy sounds pretty good to me, you?

What did you think about Larkin’s performance? Let me know in the comments below.
