Pilon, a 17-year-old defenceman acquired last month from Lethbridge, hit five of six targets to win the accuracy event, edging Pulock and Tim McGauley, who both hit four.

Pulock, however, came out on top in the hardest shot event as the Wheat Kings captain launched one at the net that was clocked at 101 miles per hour. Jayce Hawryluk came in second at 98 mph.

Robinson was the fastest skater, finishing the race in 12.5 seconds.

From a team perspective, the White squad, which included Pilon and Hawryluk, earned a dominating 7-3 victory. Hawryluk, John Quenneville and Tim McGauley teamed up to earn the squad the victory in the trick shot competition, while Team White also took both rounds of the shootout as well as the three-on-three and puck control relays.

Team Black did win the full team breakaway event to close out the day.

All proceeds from the skills day ticket sales were donated to Hockey Brandon.
