Mavs help West to 'Challenge' win

Zach Harrison is fast, but he wasn't quite the fastest player on the ice during the Frozen Four Skills Challenge on Friday night in Detroit.

Harrison, the Minnesota State senior and his MSU women's team counterpart, Ashley Young, helped the West defeat the East in the competition. (Thanks to Western College Hockey blogger Chris Dilks, who is in the Motor City, for passing on the MSU results on to PucKato.)

Harrison was the fastest skater in his heat with a time of 15.47 seconds, but he lost in the final to Oswego State's Neil Musselwhite. Harrison apparently participated in a speed skate between periods of the Boston College-Miami game on Thursday to promote the Friday event. Harrison also scored a goal during the penalty-shot competition, beating goalie Andrew Braithwaite of Merrimack.

As for Young, she participated in the puck-control relay, with the three-team West falling to the East. She was also stopped by St. Lawrence's Brittony Chartier on her penalty shot.
