NHL: Speedster Kyrou upsets McDavid

Forward Jordan Kyrou upset three-time winner Connor McDavid to win the fastest skater in the NHL All-Star skills competition before saying everyone should have belief in themselves.

The 23-year-old has scored 42 points (17 goals, 25 assists) for St. Louis this season helping them to fourth place in the Central Division (26-13-5) and 20/1 to win the Stanley Cup.

Kyrou starring for Blues

His points and goals tally lead the Blues, and he sits second for assists, two behind Robert Thomas. 

Kyrou is in a fourth season with St. Louis after being drafted in the second round of the 2016 NHL draft.

In 139 regular-season games, the speedster has scored 89 points (36 goals, 89 assists).

Youngster in good company

Participating in his first All-Star game, Kyrou completed the fastest skate course in 13.550 seconds beating McDavid who finished fourth (13.690) and also Dylan Larkin of the Detroit Red Wings who is the current fastest all-time, recording a time of 13.172 in 2016.

Kyrou followed up his success in the fastest skater competition with two goals and two assists to help the Central Division beat the Atlantic Division 8-5 in the semi-final. In a 5-3 final defeat to the Metropolitan Division, the winger registered another assist. 

He said after the fastest skate competition: "Obviously those are some of the fastest guys in the world, so just being able to go up against some of those guys was really cool. But, you always have to believe in yourself a little bit, right?"
