NHL All Star Game SuperSkills is a special competition that pits the NHL's top players against one another in six separate events. Players are asked to put their individual skills on the line in contests like the Fastest Skater, Hardest Shot, Accuracy Shooting and the Breakaway Relay. Team skills are then tested in events like the Puck Control Relay and Pass and Score. (event definition from NHL.com)
