Puck Control Relay
The puck control relay requires each skater to combine exceptional skating agility and puck-handing skills. The first two races are relay races involving 3 players per team. At the whistle, one player from each team skates to the far goal line, picks up a puck, then carries it through the pylon course. When the player has carried the puck over the start line, the next player begins. If a player loses the puck, he must regain control and return to the point where he left the course.

This event is a race against the clock. Each player starts from a standing position 3 feet from the red line, and completes one full lap around the ice surface. Players who fall must get up and complete the course to avoid disqualifying their team in the event.

This event is all about precision. The shooting accuracy contest will see each player be given just 8 attempts to hit 4 targets set up in the net. The team with the most targets hit in the fewest number of attempts is awarded one goal. The player with the most hits in the least number of attempts earns an additional point for his team.
