I've attended the skill competition a few times and it's a lot of fun. There is a lot of fan interaction since there is no glass. The players seem to have a lot of fun and try crazy moves in the breakaway competition. Actually, the best breakaway move I've seen in the competition was two years ago when Air Force's Eric Ehn pulled an insane move on Union goaltender Justin Mrazek. You can check out the goal here.
