2012 NHL Skills Competition: Pavel Datsyuk, Jimmy Howard Involved In 3 Of 6 Competitions

The 2012 Molson Canadian All-Star Skills Competition will be held on Saturday night, the night before the 2012 NHL All-Star Game. Forward Pavel Datsyuk and goalie Jimmy Howard are the Detroit Red Wings' representatives in Ottawa, both playing on Team Chara.

Jimmy Howard will be Team Chara's goalie in the Bridgestone Fastest Skater competition, which should be interesting to see. He will also be involved in the Tim Horton's Elimination Shootout as one of the three goalies; he will face Kris Letang, Jason Pominville, Erik Karlsson, and Daniel Sedin.

Datsyuk will be in two competitions, as well. He is the puck control man in the G Series Skills Challenge Relay and will face Henrik Lundqvist in the elimination shootout challenge.

You can follow the results of the skills competition after it starts at 7 p.m. on
