Steady as a Brock? Not quite. "I definitely had nerves coming into it," Vancouver Canucks right wing Brock Boeser said. "My hands were sweating a little bit." There he was, a 20-year-old rookie, standing alone on the ice and on national television for the Honda NHL Accuracy Shooting event at the 2018 GEICO NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Amalie Arena on Saturday. He had a pile of pucks to his right. He had five light-up LED targets hanging in the net 25 feet away. And he had to hit each of them in less than 11.626 seconds, the standard that had been set by New Jersey Devils center Brian Boyle.
