Under the tutelage of Head Coach Wayne Gretzky, Alex Ovechkin and Braden Holtby’s Metropolitan Division defeated the Pacific Division to win the All-Star Game tournament and earn one million dollars.
Alex Oveckin was minus-two. For some reason, Braden Holtby tried really hard in his shutout stint in net for the Metro. Ovechkin jumped up and down with Holtby to celebrate.
Braden Holtby played forward as a kid. But despite several attempts as a professional, Holtby has never scored a goal as a goaltender.
Saturday night in Los Angeles, Holtby did so during the NHL’s All-Stars Skills Competition. While participating in the Challenge Relay, Holtby clinched the win for the Metropolitan Division after scoring a goal on his fourth attempt. The Metropolitan All-Stars finished with a 1:21.700 time.
