Who is the NHL’s Most Accurate Shooter in 2016?

Ray Bourque

I miss the days of seeing NHL Hall-of-Famers Ray Bourque, Mark Messier or Brendan Shanahan rocking the accuracy contest at the NHL All-Star Skills Competition. This year it was John Tavares, Evgeni Malkin, and Joe Pavelski starring but nobody could hit the elusive four-for-four. Check it out below!

Tavares wins event

Malkin was THAT close to the win, had he not attempted to get the crowd into it, he couldn’ve won…
