The Vancouver Canucks held their SuperSkills event on Saturday, the team's annual all-star competition that pits blue vs green, Lack vs Eriksson, whale vs stick.

And, of course, it's just a lot of fun. For the players. For the fans. For everyone in the building.

The show is presented by the Canucks For Kids Fund.

Defenceman Jason Garrison (a member of Team Blue) won the Hardest Shot competition with a franchise record blast of 105.1 miles per hour, and Blue won the entire competition, 15-14 over Team White.

Injured players coached each team, Roberto Luongo at the helm for Blue and Alex Burrows coached Team White.

Ryan Kesler, Henrik Sedin, and goalie Joacim Eriksson were on Blue. Daniel Sedin, Kevin Bieksa, Dale Weise, and Eddie Lack were on White.

Daniel won the most accurate shot competition, hitting four targets in five tries. Dale Weise won the fastest skater contest, lapping the rink in 14.266 seconds.

And of course, the winner of the breakaway competition was 'Mini-Kesler'...
