2012 NHL Skills Competition: (Full Results)

The NHL's brightest stars were on display Saturday night, and a familiar Bruin stole the show in one the night's most anticipated events.

Defenseman Zdeno Chara -- one of the two designated All Star team captains -- defeated Nashville's Shea Weber in the hardest shot competition, rifling a 107.0 MPH final round snapshot. Chara's qualifying round shot of 108.8 MPH was the hardest overall on the evening (and broke his own fastest shot record), and Saturday marked the fifth straight year that the 34-year old Bruins' captain has won the competition.

Tyler Seguin, the exciting young Boston center, finished seventh out of eight competitors in the accuracy shooting contest, which was won by Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars. Seguin needed 30.092 seconds to successfully hit four targets aligned within the goalposts.

Tim Thomas, the only other Bruin All-Star, took part in the elimination shootout.

Other individual winners included Carl Hagelin (Rangers) for the fastest skater and Patrick Kane (Blackhawks) in the breakaway challenge.

The competition pitted Team Chara against Team Aflredsson, with Alfredsson's squad winning 21-12.
