When women’s hockey star and Minnesota Whitecaps player Kendall Coyne Schofield competed in the NHL’s fastest skater competition and finished with a time of 14.346 seconds, she amazed everyone watching her blaze around the ice at SAP Center.

Despite how impressive that mark was, the Olympic gold medalist managed an even more outstanding result at the National Women’s Hockey League fastest skater event with a time of 13.9 seconds.

Here’s how her time stacked up against the other competitors:


Without knowing her time to a thousandth of a second, we can’t accurately pinpoint how this time would have stacked up had it been the mark she posted at the NHL All-Star game. However, on top of finishing ahead of Clayton Keller, she would’ve also topped Cam Atkinson, while finishing somewhere very close to Miro Heiskanen and Elias Pettersson. 

The massive influence that Coyne Schofield has had on women’s hockey with these performances has been something to see.


The NWHL All-Star game which took place at Bridgestone Arena on Sunday set an attendance record with 6,120 at the game.
