Decker to get paid after NHL All-Star skills demonstration

Decker to get paid after NHL All-Star skills demonstration

Kendall Coyne Schofield was tabbed to join fellow U.S. Olympian Brianna Decker, and Rebecca Johnston and Renata Fast of Canada's national women's team to demonstrate some of the skills events in San Jose Friday night - similarly to past year when Amanda Kessel, Meghan Duggan and Hilary Knight demonstrated skills events prior to the event in Tampa.

Earlier, Decker's teammate Kendall Coyne Schofield became the first woman ever to compete in the NHL All-Star skills competition on Friday night.

Apparently, Decker was also unaware she beat Draisaitl until friends texted her. She appeared to record a time of 1:06 in the demo, which beat out the eight National Hockey League player participants, including victor Leon Draisaitl (1:09).

The Oilers forward won the NHL's Premier Passing event with a time of 1:09.088. "I was just casually going through the demo". Decker, a U.S. Olympic gold medalist, clocked in at 1:06, but the $25 thousand prize went to Draisaitl because Decker wasn't officially competing in the competition. "That's really impressive", Draisaitl said. The NHL's lack of recognition sparked #PayDecker on Twitter.

Less than 24 hours later, hockey manufacturing company CCM chose to pay Decker itself, announcing via Twitter that it would give Decker the $25,000. Filling in for Avalanche star Nathan Mackinnon, she raced around the rink in a time competitive with the top skaters in the men's game in another barrier-breaking moment for women's hockey. "You have been nothing but 1st class the last 5 years I have been a part of your family!"
