Kendall Coyne was the first woman in the All-Stars competition



SAN JOSE, Calif. – Nathan MacKinnon will miss the NHL All-Stars competition on Friday due to an undisclosed injury. Replacing MacKinnon in the Fastest Skater Event: American national player Kendall Coyne.

The 26-year-old Coyne was originally scheduled to attend the event and demonstrate the skills with other female players. But when MacKinnon, a center of Colorado Avalanche, told NHL he could not attend, the organizers decided to ask for one of the fastest women in the US women's team.

Coyne set a time of 1

4,226 seconds for the NHL Hockey Division, Thursday, according to tests. She did this without warming up, fresh from a five-hour flight. Connor McDavid of Edmonton won the event last year with 13,454. Coyne's test time would have reached her sixth place last year among the eight players.

Coyne will face Cam Atkinson, Mat Barzal, Jack Eichel, Miro Heiskanen, Clayton Keller, McDavid and Elias Pettersson on Saturday.

The all-star game of the night is still unclear. He's in San Jose to attend the ceremony, which means he has to avoid the compulsory one-game suspension to skip the skill event.
