Kane and nine other players — eight NHL All-Stars, and one American and one Canadian Elite Women’s All-Star team members — will compete in the event at 7 p.m. Friday on NBC Sports Network. Players will be on an elevated platform behind the goal, approximately 30 feet above the ice, where they will shoot pucks at a variety of targets on the ice, with each target possessing different point values. One at a time, each player will attempt seven shots and earn points for each target hit.
According to the NHL, here’s how on-ice officials will determine the points.
- Pucks that do not hit a target will earn no points
- Pucks that bounce, deflect, or otherwise ricochet onto or into a target will be counted for the highest scoring value they hit.
- A puck that hits the face of a target then falls into the center will be scored as if it went directly into the center.
- A puck that hits the center and bounces out will be scored the point value of the center.
- A puck that bounces off the ice then up onto or into a target will be awarded the corresponding value.
- A puck that hits the base of the target will not be awarded any points.
- Players may hit the same target multiple times.
If there’s a tie, players will shoot three pucks each to determine the winner followed by a sudden death “score-off” if they remain tied. The NHL will have “special protective netting” to ensure safety of fans in attendance at Enterprise Center.
