Seth Jones Will Participate in the Hardest Shot Competition
On Thursday afternoon the NHL announced which all-stars will compete in the various skills competitions on Friday night in Florida. Blackhawks defenseman Seth Jones will take part in the Hardest Shot competition for the third time in his career.
Buffalo defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, Winnipeg defenseman Josh Morrisey, Washington forward Alexander Ovechkin and Vancouver forward Elias Pettersson will compete against Jones.
I haven’t been able to confirm that Seth wants 300-level ticket holders at the United Center to attend and yell “SHOOT IT!” when it’s his turn. More as that develops.
